When Lance Armstrong is not riding a bicycle, he will be riding a Nissan vehicle. The car maker has announced it is sponsoring Team RadioShack, the new Lance Armstrong professional cycling team.
Nissan becomes the team’s official vehicle of Armstrong’s Team RadioShack.

Nissan support of Team RadioShack is no longer in effect
Since 2010, Nissan Leaf has become the world’s best-selling EV
Lance Armstrong, as if you didn’t know, is the record-breaking seven-time winner of the Tour de France and founder of the LIVESTRONG Charitable Foundation, which promotes healthy living and the fight against cancer. Armstrong is a cancer survivor.
In addition to Lance Armstrong, Team RadioShack consists of 24 professional riders from around the world, many of them considered among the strongest competitors in cycling today.
The team is competing in a busy schedule of professional cycling races worldwide in 2010, including the Tour de France, the Tour of California and the Tour of Missouri.
This is not the first time Nissan is an athletic supporter (sorry, but I could not resist that pun). Nissan already sponsors the Sports Illustrated College Football and Rodale Fitness programs.
There are more than 21 million cyclists in the United States and the 40 million cycling fans that attended live events around the world in 2009.
