Team Astana General Manager Johan Bruyneel, who was directeur sportif of the USPS and Discovery cycling teams, says "I think it's a rumour," about Lance Armstrong's reported bid to come out of retirement.
"I've tried to ascertain where this rumour might have come from," said Bruyneel, which isn't exactly a denial, but Astana spokeman Philippe Maertens flat out wrote, "Lance Armstrong is no part of our team. Team Astana has no plans with him."
AFP News: Bruyneel believes Armstrong cycling return a rumour.

Oh, and how'd you like to be an attorney named Lance Armstrong? The lawyer is defending a truck driver in Florida who allegedly took his 9000 gallon tanker truck full of gasoline around a 35 mph turn at 50 mph and flipped his truck over. The truck flipped over and exploded on top of a car, killing the four occupants of that car.
