UK / AUSTIN / FRANCE : Giant Lance Armstrong Effigy Will Be Torched Saturday...For Guy Fawkes Day.


     Recently in Dallas...the Texas State Fair's iconic giant talking statue 'Big Tex' accidentally burned-up.
     This Saturday...in Edenbridge in Kent...a 30 foot figure of former USA icon and sometimes Austin resident cyclist Lance Armstrong...now disgraced for doping...and stripped of all 7 Tour de France titles...will be deliberately torched...for a Guy Fawkes celebration.
     Wearing an oil soaked Tour de France yellow jersey...the Lance effigy holds a sign reading: 'For sale--Racing Bike. No Longer Required.'
