Armstrong will make Belgium return

Armstrong was forced to miss Paris-Nice because of a virus

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Lance Armstrong will return to competition at the Fleche Brabanconne race in Belgium on Sunday, his Discovery Channel team have confirmed.

The six-times Tour de France winner withdrew from this month's Paris-Nice race, the first event of the new Pro-Tour season, with a virus.

"He's feeling really good while out training at the moment and he's motivated to race again," said team manager Johan Bruyneel.

"I think he'll come back with the same level of form he's had in previous years at around the same period."

Sunday's event will be the 33-year-old American's first of three races in seven days. He is also due to take part in the Paris-Camembert race on Tuesday before returning to Belgium to compete in the Tour of Flanders on April 3.
