LA in the Tour of Flanders

The Dutch get all the big news first. From VeloNews:

Armstrong looks to Tour of Flanders
Lance Armstrong said Tuesday that he plans to compete in next year's Tour of Flanders, saying, "I want to prove to the world that I can also do this."

Armstrong made the comment during an interview scheduled for broadcast on Dutch television in January.

The Belgian classic, slated for April 3, covers a winding, sometimes cobbled, 257-kilometer route between Bruges and Meerbeke.

Armstrong, the only rider in history to win the Tour de France six times, suggested earlier this month, though, that he may skip next year's race to pursue other ambitions.

The Texan has won the Clasica San Sebastian, but never a spring classic, coming closest on several occasions in the Amstel Gold race. His team director said a decision would be made on the Tour de France early in 2005. Steffen Wesemann won the 88th Tour of Flanders World Cup race last April.

April in Bruges? They've got great little places to sit outside and sip some Belgian beer (Bolleke Koning)... Too bad it'll probably be cold and rainy. Then again, they do have beer...
