LITESPORT London Lite Monday, 13 July 2009 37 Ill be back says Lance as tourists take a break LANCE ARMSTRONG looks set to ride in next years Tour de France after coming out of retirement to ride in the current race. Asked if this would be his final Tour, the seven-time winner, 37, said: Probably not. Probably not. Maybe one more Tour. The Texan also confirmed a rift with Astana team-mate Alberto Contador. He said: The honest truth is that theres a little tension. Alberto is strong, and hes very ambitious. Armstrong finished yesterdays ninth stage just eight seconds off the leading pace of Rinaldo Nocentini, an Italian riding for AG2R who is not considered a yellow jersey contender. Spaniard Contador, the 2007 champion who started as the yellow jersey favourite, is second overall only six seconds off the pace ahead of todays rest day. Britains Bradley Wiggins stays fifth, David Millar (62nd) also came home in the pack, while Charle Wegelius (80th) was two minutes back. Mark Cavendish (135th), winner of two stages, finished alongside green jersey rival Thor Hushovd 25 minutes adrift. LITE&BITTER Gotanaxetogrind?Doithere...

Instead of heading to Turnberry and the seasons third major which starts on Thursday, Fisher, who finished eighth in the Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond, flew home to be with wife Jo who is due to give birth tomorrow. If the baby fails to arrive on time, Fisher will return to Turnberry where he is expected to be a leading contender after his fifth place in last months US Open. But the 28-year-old will carry a pager and he insisted he will rush for a plane if the message comes through that Jo has gone into labour. Fisher said: The Open is the most important tournament in a calendar year, but the birth of our first child is something I wont miss. I grew up dreaming of standing over a short putt to clinch the Claret Jug. Ive worked for that moment all my life. But it doesnt matter if Im six shots clear going into the final round, if Jo hasnt had the baby by then Im off the moment my pager goes to say the baby is on the way. Meanwhile, Martin Kaymer (left) will be bidding to complete an unlikely hat- trick at Turnberry after adding the Scottish Open to the French Open he won a fortnight ago. He said: Everybody asks me about a third win in a row, but we are playing in a major and the field is going to be the best we have all year.Father to be: Britains Ross Fisher BY JAMES GOLDMAN pager and he insisted he will important tournament in a rst child isbirth of our fi something I wont miss.

England-based Australian Webber, 32, celebrated his first Formula One victory in Ger- many despite a drive-through penalty imposed for barging into Rubens Barrichello, But- tons team-mate, in the hectic rush to the first corner. Red Bull finished one-two at the Nurburgring for the sec- ond Grand Prix in a row, with Silverstone winner Sebastian Vettel having to settle for being runner-up. Buttoncouldonlytrailhome fifth and after finally taking the chequered flag at the 131st attempt, Webber, who lives in Aston Clinton, Bucks, said: Bothtchampionshipsarestill up for grabs, there is no ques- tion about it.

After six wins from the first seven races, Button knows the balance of power has shifted. Button said: It was really frustrating, a difficult race for us in which nothing went right, as at Silverstone. I was stuck for a time behind Rubens after he had a problemwithhisfuelrigathis second stop. The fuel rig prob- lem screwed his race and mine. Finishing fifth is disappointing. BarrichellosbizarreBrawnblast RUBENS BARRICHELLO (left) issued an extraordinary rant against his Brawn GP team after finishing sixth in Germany. The Brazilian, who led at the first corner but ended up behind championship-leading team-mate Jenson Button, said: This was a good show from the team on how to lose a race. Im terribly upset with the way things went. I did all I had to do. I went first on the first corner and then they made me lose the race. like buses, you wait so long for one to come along and now we might see a few more.
