PICTURE BY TIM DE WAELE After Lance Armstrong wrapped up a record sixth Tour de France victory last July, the car-loving Texan’s rock star girlfriend Sheryl Crow bought him a 1970 Pontiac GTO. Within weeks the car had disappeared, apparently stolen. But unbeknown to Lance, Sheryl and the Learning Channel (TLC) had conspired to spirit the GTO away to give it a week-long makeover. Next week, the Learning Channel’s Overhaulin’ show reveals what happened when Armstrong’s new pride and joy went missing and how the six-time Tour winner reacted when the revamped GTO was returned to him. Will, as Sheryl Crow suggests during the filming, Lance have a cow? Or will Lance be made up by the makeover his GTO receives. Watch the Learning Channel at 9pm (ET/PT) next Tuesday night to find out. Click on the banners on the procycling site and newsletter to get more details on Tuesday night’s episode of Overhaulin’.
