Continuing his journey on the comeback trail, Lance Armstrong will make another racing appearance this weekend - this time on the dirt.

Just one week after contesting the Tour de Gruene in Texas, where he won both the solo time trial event as well as the team event with John Korioth, Armstrong will race the finale of the Texas Fall Cup Mountain Bike Series, The Rocky Hill Roundup, in Smithville, Texas. He'll line up with others in the cross country race on Sunday.

"He pro-rode yesterday," said promoter Scott Schaefer to Cyclingnews. "We're expecting him to race on Sunday." Armstrong was not racing Saturday's short track events.

As Armstrong proved his off-road skills in August at the Leadville 100, where he finished second to Dave Wiens, and in September at the 12 hours of Snowmass, where his three-person team finished first.
