Lance Armstrong Says 2010 Tour de France 'More Open'
With the return of cobblestones and three punishing summit finishes scheduled for the 2010 Tour de France, seven-time champion Lance Armstrong called next year's race difficult and wide open.
One race that likely won't figure in Armstrong's Tour preparations is the Milan-San Remo, the spring classic he used to stage his comeback to European racing this year, finishing in 125th place.
"I think I have another appointment that day," Armstrong joked. "A doctors appointment or something, a dentist appointment."
