MILAN (AP) — Lance Armstrong wants to race in the Milan-San Remo single-day classic again.
In a message sent to race organizers RCS, published in the Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday, Armstrong said he’d like to race San Remo this year and hopes “it works out.”
Armstrong is in Australia for the Tour Down Under, which begins Sunday. He’s planning to include several single-day classics ahead of his Tour de France preparation.
The opening classic of the cycling season, the Milan-San Remo is scheduled for March 20. Armstrong rode the nearly 200-mile race six times, placing 11th as his best finish in 1996. Last year, he was 125th.
