Thank Brett Favre?

According to a recent report from Velo News, Lance Armstrong will come out of retirement to race in the 2009 Tour de France.

According to an anonymous source close to Armstrong, the seven-time Tour champ will race for absolutely no pay.

It appears that Armstrong will ride for Astana, a team that currently employs both Johan Bruyneel and Dirk Demol, formerly executives of Armstrong's previous team, Discovery Channel.

The Velo News report also states that Armstrong plans to post all testing of blood samples online in an effort to make anti-doping measures fully transparent.

Armstrong, a Texas native, turns 37 this year.
