Make that two straight triathlon wins for Lance Armstrong, as the former seven-time Tour de France winner tackled and conquered the Rev3 Half Full Triathlon in Elliott City, Md., on Sunday. As you know, Armstrong has been banned from biking, running or swimming against other humans by the U.S. anti-doping agency because of past misdeeds with certain chemicals. But while he can’t compete in USADA-sanctioned events, there’s nothing to stop him when an event drops its sanctioning.
That’s what Rev3 did, and many other events are following suit in order to get Armstrong to compete with them. The Rev3 race raised funds for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
Those are Armstrong’s 10-year-old twin daughters in the photo there, who joined him for the last few strides toward the finish. Armstrong finished the 70-mile race in 4:10:55.566. Louis Therien of Gatineau, Quebec was second in 4:29:04.850.
“I would love to duke it out with the best of the best on that bike course,” Armstrong said of the Ellicott City course.
