Lance Armstrong and Wife Announce Their Separation

Julie Aiello pointed out that Lance and Kristen Armstrong announced their separation in a major article in the Austin American-Statesman on Saturday. According to the article:

The two separated in late January and have been living apart since. Lance Armstrong has been staying at another house, a family retreat, that he owns southwest of Austin.... Last weekend, {The Lance Armstrong Foundation} raised about $500,000 at its Live to Ride Gala in Austin. But Kristin Armstrong was out of town and did not attend, the first public clue of their separation.

For six years, the sporting world has watched Lance Armstrong's recovery and rise to the top of cycling, accompanied by his rise to the top of sports marketing. His autobiography was a best seller, and he was last year's Sportsman of the Year, as chosen by Sports Illustrated. His relationship with Kristin and their growing family has been a key part of the story.

The American-Statesman article also includes a carefully worded statement from the couple.

LanceArmstrong.com points to this story, although the other major cycling sites are remarkably quiet about it.

Update: In April, Lance and Kristin Armstrong announced that they were working at reconciliation.
