Art collector and Supertouch buddy/resident iron man LANCE ARMSTRONG hasn't had much time off the bike lately as he gears up for next year's monumental lineup of races, culminating in his unprecedented return to the TOUR DE FRANCE in July, so we check in with him now to recap his victory this weekend at the TOUR DE GRUENE time trials, and his WILLIE NELSON hosted post-race celebration for last week's annual LIVESTRONG RIDE FOR THE ROSES in the best little city in the west: Austin, Tejás. HAVE A LOOK:
