Very few people know the real reason that Lance Armstrong decided to race in Europe again after 3 years of semi-retirement. In the summers of 2006, 2007 and 2008 besides running marathons and racing mountain bikes, Lance participated in RAGBRAI. This week long event consists of riding your bike across the state of Iowa while consuming vast quantities of food and beer.
Lance found it difficult to ride away from the amateur Paparazzi and decided that it might be easier to face the professional Paparazzi in Europe.
