Is Lance Armstrong ready to race the Tour de France?
Will Armstrong eventually switch back to his first sport and take on the grueling Ironman race in Kona Hawaii?
Who would know better than his long time coach Chris Carmichael.
It was not all that long ago that Lance Armstrong was on the Big Island in Hawaii training. He posted a couple photos of himself on twitter, including one poking a bit of harmless fun at the Ironman athletes who were riding up and down the island training for the Ironman World Championships that are help in Kona ever year.
But according to Chris Carmichael, Lance Armstrong' s long time coach, Armstrong takes his first sport a bit more seriously than the photo would suggests, and plans on racing the Ironman World Championships before he retires from professional sports.
In this exclusive interview with Roman Mica held at the recent grand opening of Carmichael Training Systems new endurance club in Colorado Springs, Carmichael discusses Armstrong' s Kona Ironman race plans, and his fitness and readiness for the upcoming Tour de France.
So is Armstrong ready to go for an unprecedented eighth victory in Paris?
