LE GRAND-BORNAND, France — The link to the web site of Lance Armstrong's 2010 team, Team RadioShack, was listed incorrectly in yesterday's post.
Thanks to the reader who pointed out the broken link.
Here's the correct URL: www.teamradioshack.com.
The new site isn't much, yet. But there's a place to sign up for a free newsletter and what I expect will soon be an avalanche of information.
There are also Twitter and Facebook sign-ups.
Correspondingly, what struck me as the most interesting item in the press release announcing the new sponsorship is the mention of supporting Armstrong in cycling, running and triathlons.
So, what's in Armstrong's future?
He's committed to competing again in the Leadville 100-Milie Mountain Bike Race in August.
But what else is on the horizon? More international marathons? And will he challenge, as often discussed, the Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon?
It wasn't so long after Armstrong announced his comeback last September that he spent time in Hawaii pedaling on some of the lava-laddened roads in Kona.
