Armstrong said he expects to return to training as early as next week. Physicians have given him a 65 percent to 85 percent chance for full recovery. "I won't be riding six hours, like usual, for now," said Armstrong, speaking by conference call. from his hometown of Austin. "But I have been given approval to ride up to 50 miles a day to stay in some sort of shape. I'm going to race again." He was diagnosed last Wednesday, underwent surgery last Thursday and began a 12-week chemotherapy program Monday.

These days, Payne is closing down the private Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games and preparing to start a much lower profile job as a bank executive.
