Organizers of the 2011 Santos Tour Down Under in Adelaide, Australia next January claim that Armstrong's last international competition will be theirs, Reuters reports.

During this year's Tour de France, Armstrong, who finished 23rd overall, claimed that he would no longer compete outside of the United States. It seems as though he's changed his mind.

“I'm excited to be competing in my last professional ride outside of the U.S. at the Santos Tour Down Under,” he said. “It will be my third time to the event, and I'm sure that I will enjoy it as much as I have the first two times.”
