Lance’s fan

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

French pres­i­dent Nicolas Sarkozy, a big cy­cling fan, rode in the main Tour car, which trailed the lead­ers Thurs­day.

After­ward, he was joined on French tele­vi­sion by Lance Arm­strong.

Sarkozy told Arm­strong, in English, that he liked the bike the cy­clist had given him.

Arm­strong then cracked, “We’re just two old guys who like to ride bikes.”

Arm­strong is 38. Sarkozy is 54.
