He' s not racing the Tour of Gila.

And now according to VeloNews Lance Armstrong is racing the 5 day Tour of Gila in New Mexico later this week.

On his twitter page Armstrong just wrote, " Racing with Levi Leipheimer and Chris Horner. Come out and support a great American race if you can!!"

VeloNews is reporting that:

"The seven-time Tour de France winner and two Astana teammates will race the SRAM Tour of the Gila in Silver City, New Mexico,

after USA Cycling and the UCI negotiated a compromise over the international governing body’s rules regarding UCI Pro riders’ participation in national events.

According to Andy Lee, communications director for USA Cycling, “the UCI interpreted one of their rules in a way that ultimately allowed Lance as well as two other Astana riders to compete.”
