–Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, who retired from cycling in 2005 after setting the record for victories in the grand tour. Yesterday VeloNews.com leaked the news announced in a story on Vanity Fair‘s website today that Armstrong, 37, intends to return to professional cycling to seek an eighth yellow jersey.
