Armstrong Pedals Onto Big and Small Screens23 Jun, 2004 By: Erik Gruenwedel
In case you missed Lance Armstrong playing himself in Dodgeball, last week's No. 1 box office movie, you can check out next week's start of the 91st Tour de France bicycle race, where Armstrong will attempt to become the first person to win the three-week event six times.
Austin, Texas, native Armstrong, who overcame advanced testicular cancer in 1997 and last year became only the second person to ever win the Tour five consecutive times, is no stranger to video.
The 32-year-old professional cyclist's exploits, including U.S. races in the mid-'90s, documentaries, interviews and European competition, are available on DVD/VHS from World Cycling Productions, St. Paul, Minn.
