Does Lance Want to Buy the Tour?

Posted by ManintheArena on Sep 23, 2008 10:20:11 AM

The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Sunday that Lance Armstrong is rumored to be <a href="" target="_blank">interested in a possible buyout of ASO</a>, the company that owns the Tour de France.


The author, Rupert Guinness, writes:


+It may not be unveiled next week, but the word is that Armstrong is involved in a possible buyout of Tour organisers Amaury Sport Organisation from its parent company the Amaury Group.


Furthermore, Armstrong may saddle up in the deal with Hein Verbruggen - the former president and now vice-president of cycling's world body, the Union Cycliste Internationale. Some say it may be an Armstrong-UCI deal.+


While this is purely rumor right now, so was "Lance Armstrong is coming back" before it actually happened. Who knows?
