At an appearance at a Canadian Tire outlet today to promote a line of fitness equipment, Lance Armstrong strongly suggested that he has his sights set on the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii this year.
When asked if he would be racing in Hawaii in October Armstrong said, "It’s interesting, it’s appealing," he said. “How possible is it to do well? I don’t know. That’s what I’m exploring."
The seven time Tour de France Champion added when asked if he's preparing for a new triathlon career, "I don’t know if I would say I’m preparing for another career, but I’m definitely preparing for a triathlon."
He went on to point people to his twitter feed when asked about his training and racing goals.
“It does not take a rocket scientist to say this guy’s training for something,” he said talking about all of his increasingly long workouts that he's chronicling through twitter.
When asked about how last year's XTERRA championships went when he finished in 23rd place Armstrong responded by saying, "I did okay, but it was a lot harder than I remember," he said.
