well, one day at least:

Lance Armstrong, winner of the Tour de France the last seven consecutive years, is passing up Paris this summer to ride RAGBRAI.

Barry Jackson of the Lance Armstrong Foundation confirmed Tuesday that Armstrong hopes to ride at least one day of the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.

"We're trying to figure out the logistics right now, but we know Lance is coming to Iowa and he is going to be a part of RAGBRAI," said Jackson.

RAGBRAI, the oldest and largest event of its kind in the world, begins in Sergeant Bluff on July 23 and ends July 29 in Muscatine. Along the way, there are overnight stops in Ida Grove, Audubon, Waukee, Newton, Marengo and Coralville.

"We think we might be part of a huge event we hear they're having in Newton," said Jackson. "Lance is really excited about this. He's known about RAGBRAI for a very long time and now he's going to have the opportunity to be a part of it."
