Lance Armstrong is going to be racing on September 30 in a triathlon that will take racers across the Silver Strand, which connects the Coronado Island and Imperial Beach areas of San Diego County. With his current troubles surrounding sanctioned bike races, this will be a good opportunity for bike lovers to catch him in action.

Even though Lance Armstrong is banned from sanctioned events, since Aug. 12 he has raced in a number of competitions including marathons, mountain bike races and half marathons.

On Sept. 30 he will be participating in the 34th annual Superfrog Triathlon along the Coronado Silver Strand in San Diego. Racers will face off in a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run.

"We've been courting him for years, but we were pleasantly surprised when that call came in," said race director Mitch Hall referring to the inquiry from Armstrong to race.
