Lance Armstrong Confirmed for 2010 Milan-San Remo Classic
2010 Milano-San Remo part of Lance Armstrong's training program for July's Tour de France.
Organizers for the 2010 Milan-San Remo race have confirmed that seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong will take part in Saturday's race.
RCS Sport said Monday that Armstrong made the commitment in a phone call with race director Angelo Zomegnan.
The Milan-San Remo is the opening single-day classic of the cycling season, and at 298 kilometers (185 miles) it is one of the longest races of the year.
Armstrong is riding to get in shape for the Tour de France, and is unlikely to contest for victory. Last year, in one of his first races back from retirement, he finished 125th-8 minutes, 19 seconds behind British winner Mark Cavendish.
Before retiring the first time, Lance Armstrong raced the Milan-San Remo six times and never won.
Team RadioShack for the 2010 Milan-San Remo:
Lance Armstrong, Daryl Impey, Markel Irizar, Geoffroy Lequatre, Dmitriy Muravyev, Gregory Rast, Sébastien Rosseler, and Tomas Vaitkus
Sports Director: Johan Bruyneel
