During a Q&A with Outside Magazine, Lance Armstrong addressed the question of whether or not he will be competing in triathlons and more specifically, Ironmans. When asked if he would like to compete at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Armstrong responded “I trained at Kona before the Tour Down Under. I was there. I’d like to go back and try some Ironman events. Not just Kona.” Armstrong also addressed the question of how big of a lead he thinks he would need off of the bike in order to be a contender at the Ironman distance.
