The Twittersphere has been abuzz the past couple days with conjecture about Lance Armstrong’s return to triathlon. On Saturday, followers of @JuanPelota, Armstrong’s Twitter alter ego, first learned that he’d be racing Sept. 24. The question was where. Then, yesterday @JuanPelota posted a message saying he had fun on a mountain bike ride, providing his route, which happens to be the Xterra National Championship course near Ogden, Utah, scheduled for Sept. 24. Xterra reps couldn’t confirm Armstrong’s entry.
