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??

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

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