LANCE IS BACK...DOWN UNDER

ON THE ROAD AGAIN. No way any of us would have noticed it in the bright light of the Inauguration of Barack Obama. But it happened, just the same. Lance Armstrong rode the first stage of the Tour Down Under today, making his professional cycling debut after a three-year retirement.

PREP FOR TOUR DE FRANCE. Armstrong, riding for Kazakh team Astana, will pedal across Australia throughout the week. He's not expected to win the race, but his presence in it and his intention to compete again in the Tour de France come July has significantly raised levels of interest and attention. Does the "old guy" still have a win in him?

Track the progress of the Tour Down Under.
