Austin: A spokesman for Lance Armstrong says the seven-time Tour de France champion plans to attend the final two days of this year`s race.
Armstrong’s spokesman Mark Higgins says Armstrong will attend the time trial in Grenoble on July 23 before going to Paris on the race`s final day to host a party for Team Radioshack supporters.
Federal authorities are investigating whether Armstrong and his former US Postal team participated in a systematic doping program. Armstrong, who won the Tour every year from 1999-2005, has steadfastly denied doping and has never failed a drug test.
He also plans to ride in part of the 39th annual RAGBRAI in Iowa, which runs July 24-30.
