Armstrong no theme for Columbia

It is not yet known for which team Lance Armstrong may be riding next year, but it is clear which team it won't be - Team Columbia. Sport director Rolf Aldag has denied any interest in the seven-time Tour de France winner.

"There haven't been any discussions with him," Aldag told the sid news agency. "Armstrong is a theme for all of cycling right now, but not for us. He will probably work together with his former cohorts like Johan Bruyneel anyway."

Armstrong has scheduled a press conference on September 24 to announce his more specific future plans.
