Lance Back in the Saddle?

Lance Armstrong is planning a comeback.  That's right, just like Michael Jordan and Brett Favre, the seven-time winner of the Tour de France and former World Champion is returning from retirement, allegedly to spread the message of cancer awareness and cancer survival.  He's already signed a deal with Astana.  Since that team already has Alberto Contador and Levi Leipheimer as general-classification contendors, and since Armstrong just turned 37, I'm not sure how he is going to find a role for himself.  Could he be content to be a domestique?  I can't imagine that.

Armstrong's first race will be the Tour Down Under in January.  He plans to contest the Tour de France and is considering the Giro d'Italia as well.
