Like Lindsay Lohan before him, Lance Armstrong has turned down a chance to appear on Dancing With the Stars next season. According to EW, the former Tour de France champion was approached by producers of the ABC reality competition and offered a spot in the cast, but he turned it down - good-naturedly, of course.

"Lance has been offered the show each and every year since its inception," his spokesperson, who must be having a nervous breakdown, commented on the news. "Although flattered he has passed on their generous offers."

As we previously reported, Lohan was also offered a spot in the cast for next season, but turned it down because she feels that she's too serious an actor to appear on reality television. Unlike Lilo, Armstrong doesn't really have a chance at ever being a serious cyclist again because of that whole doping thing, but, we gotta say, his decision is the right one - we really just can't see him tripping the light fantastic anytime soon.
