The president of USA cycling has thrown his support behind Lance Armstrong's decision to have a tilt at an eighth Tour de France title.

Armstrong has confirmed he'll get back in the saddle for a number of top races next year, including the Tour.

The 36-year-old will outline his plans on September 24th.

USA Cycling President Jim Ochowicz has no doubts Armstrong will be competitive because when he sets out to do something he gets it done.

Ochowicz says it's now or never for Lance Armstrong, and he can't wait another two years.
