Armstrong Set To Quit After Tour

Six-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong looks set to retire after going for a seventh title in July.

The American has confirmed he will line up for this year's Tour de France, but will reveal his plans for beyond that at a news conference on 18 April.

"I have to talk to the press and I have to tell them something important," said the 33-year-old.

"The only thing I know for sure is that I will be starting the Tour de France this year, but it could be the last."

Armstrong signed a two-year contract with the Discovery Channel team before this season, but the contract requires that he only race one more Tour de France.

He has had a difficult start to this season, retiring from the Paris-Nice last week a few days after finishing 140th in the prologue, which he called "the worst time trial of my life".

Armstrong will next take part in the Tour of Flanders, a single-day classic, on Sunday, but only as support to team-mate George Hincapie.
