Sunday is the day that Lance Armstrong will win his first Ironman 70.3. You heard it here first. He's racing in Ironman Florida 70.3 on Sunday, and he's actually picked as the favorite to win! Andy Potts was supposed to race, but he has apparently chose not to (I think he is letting Lance take this one so he can earn enough point to get to Kona).
Ok, I don't really think that it what Andy Potts is doing, but that would be pretty interesting if he was, right? In case you don't understand what I'm talking about, professional triathletes now have to earn enough points in order to get a slot at Kona. They do this based on the races that they perform well at, with different races being worth different points. The winner of Sunday's race only gets 500 points, which I've heard is pretty low comparatively to other races.
Anyway, if you'd like to check out the race (depending on when you read this, it may be over already!), you can go here:
According to the athlete guide, the race starts at 6:30 am EST, meaning Lance will probably be done by the time most of us Arizona dwellers even roll out of bed! But if you happen to get up early enough, check it out!
