Lance Armstrong going down under. Will be last race outside of USA.

"Johan Bruyneel has appealed the timing of his suspension to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) asking for his ban to start on January 1 instead of February 1."

"If Bruyneel is successful and his ban starts on January 1, he would miss Lance Armstrong's ride in the Tour Down Under, January 16 to 23. Armstrong has said it will be his last race outside the US."

"At the end of October the International Cycling Union (UCI) announced the suspension, saying that Radioshack violated regulations by wearing an unauthorised jersey in the last stage of the Tour de France. Bruyneel, the directeurs sportif and the riders were also all ordered to pay a fine. Bruyneel was also cited for publicly insulting the UCI race commissaires, for which he apologized."
