Armstrong says road to France starts in Quebec



MONT-TREMBLANT, Quebec – Lance Armstrong says fighting cancer is the driving force in his decision to race again.

The seven-time Tour de France winner shared a rain-soaked road north of Montreal on Friday with about 40 cyclists to promote awareness about the disease.

“As some of you may or may not know, I’ve decided to race again . . . to talk about the global circumstances of this disease,” said Armstrong, who wore a yellow jersey before his ride in the fundraiser. “It really starts here today in Quebec and in Canada. The disease doesn’t discriminate. If it wants to come and get you, it will.”

The 36-year-old cancer survivor told Vanity Fair this week he’s fully certain he will compete in next summer’s Tour de France.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
