Armstrong has confirmed he will compete Sept. 24 in the XTERRA course that covers a 1-mile swim, 20-mile mountain bike ride and 6-mile trail run.

He scouted the course for three hours last week with the past president of the foundation that sponsors the XTERRA championship, and has tweeted four-time XTERRA world champion Conrad Stoltz about it.

The top XTERRA athletes in the world will compete next week at Snowbasin, including South Africa’s Stoltz, five-time national champ Josiah Middaugh and two-time Ironman World Champion Tim DeBoom.
