Armstrong set to outline plans for return to cycling

The Seven-times Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong is set to outline his plans for his return to competitive cycling tomorrow heralding a comeback that is certain to spark as much controversy as inspiration.

A survivor of testicular cancer, Armstrong earlier this month announced he was coming out of retirement.

Armstrong, however, has been dogged by accusations that he used drugs to help him win the Tour so many times after surviving cancer but he has never failed a drugs test.

Armstrong's return could see him join the Astana team, which is run by his friend and former sporting director Johan Bruyneel, who helped the American win all his seven Tours.
