On June 24, 2012 Lance Armstrong is scheduled to take part in his first ever full distance Ironman in Nice France.
This is without a doubt one of the most anticipated events in the long and storied history of the Ironman triathlon.
It`s not so much about how Armstrong almost won his very first race as a pro in Ironman 70.3 Panama, how he struggled to balance nutrition, bike speed and run endurance in Ironman70.3 Texas and Ironman 70.3 St. Croix, or how he put it all together to dominate in Ironman 70.3 Florida and most recently in a record-setting performance in Ironman 70.3 Hawaii on June 3, 2012.
It`s not even so much about how he won the Tour de France seven times before descending into the world of Ironman with all the subtlety of a rampaging herd of Texas Longhorn steers.
What it is truly about is the courage and tenacity that he displays on the playing field of life that was instrumental in his successful battle against cancer when it seemed that all was lost.
