Seven Time Tour de France champion, American Lance Armstrong made a dramatic return to racing after a 2 year retirement. He chose the Tour Down Under in Adelaide, Australia in 2009 to make his return to competitive cycling, with the Kazakhstan based Astana team.

In 2010 Armstrong declared before the Tour de France that it would be his last, and after losing minutes in the first mountain stage it would appear that the end of his career may be near.
