To many crappy threads to search through to see if this has been posted already.

From Cyclingnews:

Lance Armstrong has announced his engagement to his girlfirend, with whom he has been living for 18 months, rock star Sheryl Crow. Armstrong asked the question during a holiday last week spent at Tom Weisel's house in Sun Valley, Idaho, where he also went out mountain biking every day. "We've told family and friends, stuff like that," he said, adding that he discussed the move with his three children beforehand. The wedding could take place in spring 2006.

The seven-times Tour de France winner has also been contemplating a possible come-back at the French Grand Tour 2006 although the Texan retired from the sport just a few weeks ago. "I'm thinking about it," Armstrong told The American Statesman's Suzanne Halliburton. "I'm thinking it's the best way to piss (the French) off," he added, in response to French newspaper L'Equipe, which reported on August 23 that it had proof that Armstrong used the banned drug EPO in the Tour 1999, the first Tour the American won.

Armstrong, who denies the allegation firmly, said he entertained the idea for the past two weeks, since the publication of the paper initialising the controversy. When asked how serious he was about another Tour, Armstrong said, "I'm exercising every day." Armstrong is still in good shape and will participate in the Tour Of Hope from September 29 to October 8, 2005. He will also be part of the Discovery Channel's first team training camp for next season in early December in Austin, Texas.

Cyclingnews reached Discovery Channel sports director Johan Bruyneel in his team car at the Vuelta a Espana and he told us that "Yes, the quote from Lance in the Austin American Statesman is certain. You know, we had some retirement parties in Nice after the Tour and then Lance went back to the States and took it easy for a few weeks. Then he called me three weeks later and said 'I'm back on the bike... I'm getting bored and missing the exercise, the riding'."

Bruyneel explained that "I'm not excluding a comeback by Lance for 2006, but can't confirm anything until I talk to him. But it's not impossible."

Yeah, I was so close that I could have licked her last year.


She would have fallen for me instead of Lance....
and then Lance would have been depressed and not won the 7th....

It's a good thing that I didn't try to lick her. I helped out Lance's career........

It was on the news on the radio here today.

"Lance Armstrong is engaged to rock star and homewrecker Sheryl Crow...."

I chuckled.....

Why is it that Lance timelines are always worng?

Kristen stayed with Lance while he was sick........WRONG They met after.

Lance left wife for Crow.........WRONG She came after after.

So if Lance Armstrong marries Sheryl Crow, I can see him following the
path of Tiger Woods. Prior to Wood's marriage to his supermodel wife,
he used to burn up the golf course. Now he seem to of lost some of his
magic.

In Armstrong's case, I can see the following scenario. Humm, he can do a 60 mile
training hill climb today or he can stay
home with Sheryl Crow. Gee, it's a no brainer.

I wish Lance would race the Norba Nationals next year.
I know that sounds dumb, but he retired because he wanted to spend time with his kids, and that would work.
And Lord knows Norba could sure use his pulling power at their declining events.

A french newspaper is accusing him of using viagra as a performance enhancing drug when puting his cucumber into the old crow-bag.

Well, rumor has it that Trek is building some freaky prototype bike that Lance plans to race at the NORBA season opener in Texas.
