DAKAR, Robby Gordon - Lance Armstrong!

Robby offers Dakar seat to Armstrong:
#7-Robby Gordon has invited cyclist Lance Armstrong to ride with him during the Dakar Rally. The rally, perhaps the most grueling event in motor sports, begins Dec. 31 and lasts two weeks. Off-road vehicles will race from Portugal to the city of Dakar in Senegal, a country on the west coast of North Africa. Along the way, drivers will bounce through terrain that ranges from mountains to deserts. The rally is organized by a company called ASO, which also organizes the Tour de France. Armstrong will retire after trying to win his seventh Tour next month. In an interview with Vela, a French cycling magazine, that was excerpted on the English-language velonews.com Web site, Armstrong said of Gordon's invitation, "I get propositions like this all the time, and it could be an interesting program for Discovery." Armstrong's cycling team is sponsored by the Discovery Channel.(USA Today)(5-18-2005)
