Here’s a blast from the past: Lance Armstrong is rumored to be getting back on the bicycle professionally and will compete in five races including the Tour de France. Armstrong is 37 and would be returning in an attempt to win his 8th Tour. This would be just one more amazing example of how older athletes are accomplishing more than ever and knocking down stereotypes along the way. Athletes such as Lance, Dara Torres, and the several Olympians near or over age 50 have really shown the potential for older folks to compete on an elite level. Ride on, Lance!
