LANCE ARMSTRONG

Lance Armstrong

Anyone watching Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France?

I’ve been watching in a little bit with my husband in the mornings as we’re getting ready for work. It’s taken on a new meeting in our household due to the amount of road biking we have started doing this past year or so.

Since I love trivia . . . I thought it only appropriate to dig up a little about Lance…Do you know these??

1. Lance Armstrong first gained notoriety as a cyclist in 1991, by winning which event?

2. Lance won the Iron Kids Triathlon at 13, and became a professional triathlete by what age?

3. How many times has Lance won the Tour De France?

4. What year did Lance win the ESPY award for Best Male Athlete?

5. How tall is Lance?

**Give it a guess in the comments, I’ll stop by later to see how you did**

    Lynn, I don’t have a clue, except I know he’s an exceptional athlete and overcame prostate CA. I’m imagining as a bicyclist you follow his career intently, and hope you forgive me for not! Anyway, keep riding!
