Armstrong Hedges on 2005 Tour

Six time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong told the French cycling sport daily l'Equipe today that he might not ride in the 92nd Tour de France.

Armstrong told l'Equipe: "Honestly, I don't know if I will ride the Tour. There are a lot of other things I would like to accomplish in cycling, before retiring. I won a sixth Tour and I made history. Now, it's time to do something else."

Armstrong said he was thinking of racing the Classics and said the thought of Paris-Roubaix was "very exciting." He will certainly be a part of the Discovery squad for 2005, but said he would not ride the Giro d'Italia.
