Lance Armstrong Confirmed For Giro Despite Surgery

Posted: Updated:
MILAN (AP) - Lance Armstrong has told organizers that he will race in the Giro d'Italia.

The announcement posted on the Gazzetta dello Sport's Web site Thursday removed doubts that the seven-time Tour de France champion would miss the race after having surgery on his broken right collarbone last month.

Armstrong is currently training in Colorado.

The Giro runs May 9-31.

It will mark the first time Armstrong races in the Italian classic, considered cycling's second most important race after the Tour.
