Discovery to ride Camembert

After a solid though not spectacular performance at the Brabantse Pijl in Belgium, Discovery leader Lance Armstrong is set to ride today's Paris-Camembert Lepetit as final preparation before Sunday's Ronde Van Vlaanderen.

Finishing in 43rd place last Sunday, 3'43 behind eventual winner Oscar Freire (Rabobank), Armstrong appears to have found the rhythmn of racing once again after an untimely exit from Paris-Nice earlier this month, where he contracted a fever as a result of unseasonally cold weather. As he has vowed to do in this weekend's Tour of Flanders, Discovery's Big Cheese was riding for the team's Classics captain, George Hincapie, who is in excellent form and finished the Brabantse Pijl in sixth place.
