Lance Armstrong says he's
found a new American sponsor to back his team next year.

The seven-time Tour de France champion said on his Twitter feed
Tuesday: "Making a very cool announcement on Thursday re: a new
American partner for our team in 2010 (and beyond). Stay tuned!"

Armstrong returned to competition this year after 31/2 years of
retirement and has previously hinted he could ride for another
season -- including a return to the Tour.

Armstrong told The Associated Press by phone after Tuesday's
16th stage that there is a "good chance" he will ride next year
in the peloton. He refused to elaborate on whether he will stay
with the Kazakh-funded Astana team or launch his own squad.
