At the Waco City Circus, Lance Armstrong was introduced dressed as a clown and raced his tricycle around a small one-ring stage. Most on hand considered the spectacle embarrassing and pathetic, Mr. Armstrong provided a different perspective.
“This is my comeback, pure and simple. I can still ride! I can still win when it counts!” said Lance.
His opponent, Blutto the clown, was reported to have come in second during the clown race. Cycling enthusiasts confirmed one important fact: The victory turned out to be Lance Armstrong’s first without the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Circus operators remain skeptical and are withholding Lance’s pay until urine tests have been validated.
