Lance on the grind. Sleep is not an option...

Supertouch homie/cycling legend/hardcore art collector LANCE ARMSTRONG finally dispelled the media gossip surrounding his professional re-emergence today by confirming what insiders have known all along: that his official participation in 2009's TOUR DE FRANCE is indeed on like Donkey Kong. Speaking to the AP from his training camp atop the dormant volcano that is Mt. Teide in the Canary Islands, Lance explained that breaking the LIVESTRONG FOUNDATION's cancer fight worldwide remains his prime focus in running the race: "Mentally, in terms of motivation, this feels like 1998-1999 to me. I'm happy with the record (seven wins). I'm training hard and trying to be as competitive as possible [but] the main objective is the message of the [Livestrong] foundation. That's the first priority. The Tour is the biggest bike race in the world; we need it to tell this story on the biggest stage." Keep your eyes peeled for some incredible art-centric Lance/Livestrong energy pieces to drop worldwide as the Tour nears. One thing's for sure, 2009 is gonna be a monster...
