Amid the hoopla of the presentation of his new Discovery Channel Pro Cycling team, Lance Armstrong is still reserving judgment on his participation in this year's Tour De France. The six-time Tour winner explained that Monday that he will ride the World Cup races Tour of Flanders, Liege-Bastogne-Liege and Amstel Gold as well as the Flèche Wallonne, then look to decide about his program for the rest of 2005 at the end of April.
"That would be a good time to adjust," he said a press conference after the team presentation. "At the moment I can't say if I'll ride the Tour...we are not ruling anything out, but we will see at the time." Armstrong also confirmed that he was seriously considering an attempt at the World Hour Record later this year.
