Don't call it a comeback..

From http://www.lancearmstrong.com/

Yes, the rumors are true in fact. Lance will be making a historic comeback to professional cycling in 2009. To see a video clip of Lance and his official statement go to www.livestrong.com/lance2009.

What does this have to do with me? Lance is a definate hero of mine. Born 9-18-1971 he is only 5 days older than me. He is a cancer survivor and a 7 time Tour de France winner. (Not that I share the last two with him)

Physical attributes
Armstrong has a VO2 max of 83.8 mL/kg/min, much higher than the average person (40-50), but not as high as that of some other elite cyclists, such as Miguel Indurain (88.0, although reports exist that Indurain tested at 92-94) or Greg LeMond (92.5). His heart is 30 percent larger than average; however, an enlarged heart is a common trait for many other athletes. He has a resting heart rate of 32-34 beats per minute (bpm) with a maximum heart rate of 201 bpm.
