Team Astana General Manager Johan Bruyneel, who was directeur sportif of the USPS and Discovery cycling teams, says “I think it’s a rumour,” about Lance Armstrong’s reported bid to come out of retirement.
“I’ve tried to ascertain where this rumour might have come from,” said Bruyneel, which isn’t exactly a denial, but Astana spokeman Philippe Maertens flat out wrote, “Lance Armstrong is no part of our team. Team Astana has no plans with him.”
Oh, and how’d you like to be an attorney named Lance Armstrong? The lawyer is defending a truck driver in Florida who allegedly took his 9000 gallon tanker truck full of gasoline around a 35 mph turn at 50 mph and flipped his truck over. The truck flipped over and exploded on top of a car, killing the four occupants of that car.
