Lance Armstrong's new team

RadioShack and Lance to Form New Cycling Team in 2010 -- powered by http://www.livestrong.com

In case you missed the news earlier today, Lance Armstrong and his LiveStrong charity will team up with RadioShack and other sponsors to form Team RadioShack for the 2010 season.

Not only does Armstrong and his new team plan to race in the 2010 Tour de France, The Associated Press reports Armstrong plans to participate in running and triathlon events for Team RadioShack.

“It’s a huge opportunity for us as an organization and as a cancer survivor. It’s pretty mega,” Armstrong added after Thursday's Tour de France time trial stage in Annecy, France.

Armstrong put himself back on the podium with today's performance. Earlier this week, Armstrong more or less conceded the yellow jersey to current Astana teammate Alberto Contador. Barring a major catastrophe on Contador's part, the best Armstrong can hope for is second or third. Still, it's a major accomplishment for a 37-year-old professional cyclist.
