Armstrong has shown he has off road skills by taking out the "Blast the Mass" Mountain Bike race and inturn becoming the Colorado state champ.
“Believe it or not, Lance is actually great on his mountain bike, even on a technical course. Assuming he has good fitness after coming off of the Tour, he’s do just fine,” Henry said.
Armstrong’s presence at the local and regional races brings lots of attention to the mountain bike scene."It’s great when he comes out and attends these races. It brings attentions and a lot more respect. He doesn’t walk away with victory, he is battling for it. It proves the legitamacy of mountain biking," Henry said.
