Armstrong pulls out of Tour of Ireland: Report

Lance Armstrong reportedly abandoned the Tour of Ireland race in the final stages Sunday, pulling out in heavy rain after having virtually no chance of winning. According to Irishcycling.com, the field had reached the finishing circuit in Cork when the seven-time Tour de France winner withdrew.

He had finished 20th overall on Saturday in the three-day race, 26 seconds behind leader Russell Downing of Britain. Armstrong finished third in this year's Tour de France after coming out of retirement.
