Lance Armstrong submitted to a French doping test yesterday, which involved a hair sample. Lance's latest close shave resulted in hair loos. From Cycling Weekly:
The seven-times Tour de France champion was visited in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, France, on Tuesday for his 24th out-of-competition test since announcing his comeback from retirement last year. Inspectors requested the usual blood and urine samples, and also removed a sample of hair for analysis.
"Yet another 'surprise' anti-doping control," wrote Armstrong on his Twitter site. "This one from the French authorities. Urine, blood, and hair! Classic..."
"So I'm clear - never complaining about these tests. Def part of the job. Feel targeted? Of course. But anything to prove I'm clean. Onward."
So brave. So bold. And such short hair: apparently he needed a haircut to cover up the sampled areas.
Armstrong was working out in France, preparing for the 2009 Tour de France.
