Lance Armstrong To Race In New Zealand - Maria Sharapova To Play - Who Are You Most Looking Forward to Seeing?
Cycling legend Lance Armstrong is coming to New Zealand to race in a Rotorua triathlon in January. He is about to retire from cycling again and has already registered for the event. It will be a great way for promoters to get more entrants in this race. Cheat or no cheat you have to admire the guy for what he has achieved and it will be great to have him in this country. It is a pity he never came and rode in the Tour of Southland with his old buddy Floyd Landis.
We now have two of the biggest names in world sport arriving in this country in January. Maria Sharapova will grace the ASB Classic with her presence, while Lance Armstrong will also be here. Which one are you more excited about seeing?
As a tennis player and fan I would rather see Sharapova in action. She is an awesome player and has had a less controversial career. Notice I didn't even mention the looks. For me it is more about her achievements on the courts rather than on the catwalk. She has won Grand Slam singles titles unlike Anna Kournikova. But I would be stoked to see one or both down the street.
