SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Seven-time Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong will be back on the bike competing in the XTERRA USA Championship at Snowbasin Ski Resort in Utah.
Armstrong has confirmed he will compete Sept. 24 in the XTERRA course that covers a 1-mile swim, 20-mile mountain bike ride and 6-mile trail run.
He scouted the course for three hours last week with the past president of the foundation that sponsors the XTERRA championship, and has tweeted four-time XTERRA world champion Conrad Stoltz about it.
The top XTERRA athletes in the world will compete next week at Snowbasin, including South Africa's Stoltz, five-time national champ Josiah Middaugh and two-time Ironman World Champion Tim DeBoom.
