Armstrong’s return to triathlon

Rotorua at the end of January.

It is well known that Lance Armstrong is making a return to triathlon, with the high likelihood that he will race in Kona in 2011.

Under the pseudonym Juan Pelota, on twitter, Armstrong provides regular updates on his triathlon training, and a few special friends drop in with comments from time to time.

On one of those recent twitter updates, Juan/Lance posted this:

“I’m thinking the first tri is here… 38°12′S 176°20′E”

The location is Rotorua, New Zealand, and it hosts the Blue Lake Multisport Festival at the end of January.

Nothing is confirmed yet, but Lance will be in the area racing the Tour Down Under in Australia, so it is a strong possibility. One thing is certain though, he is doing a lot of swimming.
