Lance Armstrong

Sorry if this is 205 but everyone at the same time say, "awwww".

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong and rock star Sheryl Crow are engaged.

The cyclist announced the engagement in a statement Monday and said he asked Crow on Wednesday while they were in Sun Valley, Idaho.

No wedding date has been set, although it could be a spring wedding, Armstrong spokesman Mark Higgins said.

Armstrong retired in July after winning his seventh straight Tour.

The marriage will be the second for Armstrong, who has three children with ex-wife Kristin. It will be the first for Crow.

Armstrong, who turns 34 later this month, began dating the 43-year-old Crow more than a year ago, and he soon introduced her to the rigors of the cycling world.

"We're very similar," he said. "She likes to stay busy. She's always on, and I like that. We don't stay home. If we want, we go out for some Baja Fresh or to a Lakers game. When we're together, we never feel bothered or uncomfortable."

Crow regularly accompanied Armstrong on races and traveled with him extensively during this year's Tour de France. And this summer, Armstrong spoke frequently about how he and Crow have made their relationship work.

"We're two people with separate busy lives and we've defied the odds,'' Armstrong said. "We're still as happy as we were the first day."

Armstrong said his mother, Linda, has already bonded with Crow.

"They're inseparable," he says. "She almost talks more with my mom than I do."

But Armstrong's life after the Tour de France hasn't been all that peaceful so far, as he has been accused by a French newspaper of using the performance-enhancing drug EPO to help win his first Tour de France in 1999.

Armstrong has vehemently denied the newspaper's claims and said that he is the victim of a "witch hunt."

The editor of French sports daily L'Equipe denied that his paper accused Armstrong of doping because he is American.

"If Lance Armstrong was a French rider and we were in possession of the same information, we would have done the same thing," Claude Droussent told France's LCI television station.

On Aug. 23, L'Equipe reported that it had evidence that six of Armstrong's urine samples from the 1999 Tour tested positive for EPO.

The substance was banned, but there was no reliable test at the time. Scientists used 'B' samples last year while researching testing techniques, but the 'A' samples had been used up.

"Because of what we have revealed ... it casts discredit on the rest of his (Armstrong's) career," Droussent said.

The UCI, or the International Cycling Union, said Monday it would investigate reports of positive drug tests at the 1999 Tour and issue its findings within 10 days.

Armstrong has said he is considering whether to take the newspaper, France's national anti-doping laboratory, and Tour race director Jean-Marie Leblanc to court.

He still has one nut, doesn't he?

At 36, that's probably enough to oak tree boners, huh?

I wonder if he has trouble producing enough testosterone? His voice is still low, I guess.

Isn't EPO routinely used in cancer treatment regimens? I mean IF it was in his system in 1999, how does that account for his annihalation of every other cyclist in the world for the remaining six years? I say he is a bad MOFO. Solution to the problem of doping:

Legalize performance enhancing drugs. Get rid of the rest days. Make every other stage a time trial. Minimum stage distance 500k. Could have the Tour wrapped up in about a week. Call it an Unlimited class.

In related news, the manufacturer of the Livestrong Foundation yellow wristband has been having trouble keeping up with orders due to equipment malfunctions. The trendy wristbands are now in very short supply.


I hear that even Lance himself would give his left nut if he could find one.

The man has endured much (from the perspective of one who is not a world class athelete), as well as has survived more than most of us care to deal with, to achieve greatness in his chosen field and I, for one, have to recognize and tip my hat to him. What he does now with his personal life is his own business. His golden moments may fade with passage of time...who remembers much of Greg LaMonde or Bernard Hinault or recall what they are doing today?

Just hope the tingling and numbness goes away in the groin area, so he can enjoy his time with S. Crow.

crow and lancy pants

now there is rumors on espn.com that he might come out of retirement.

PS- Lance has been eating Crow since he starting dating her. Why do you think the 43 yr old is smiling all the time?
