Lance makes appearance day before grueling climb


GAP, France (AP) -- Lance Armstrong was back in a familiar spot -- at the top of L'Alpe d'Huez.

The retired seven-time Tour de France champion pedaled to the Alpine ski resort on Monday's Tour rest day, one day before riders attempt the grueling 116-mile 15th stage.

Armstrong plans to watch the stage on TV, visit the team bus before Wednesday's 16th stage and manager Johan Bruyneel in the Discovery car on the course route.

Armstrong's presence could serve as motivation for his former Discovery teammates -- none are in the top 10 in the overall standings....Armstrong will leave the team on Wednesday, spend a few days relaxing and rejoin the Tour for Sunday's finish on the Champs-Elysees, Discovery Channel team spokesman P.J. Rabice said.
can you imagine being one of the thousands probably climbing today and watching lance go streaking by, assuming he was hammering. which is probably a good assumption knowing him. i wonder how far off his ITT pace he was.
