Lance Armstrong will wait until May before deciding whether to race in next year's Tour de France.
The six-time Tour champion has already confirmed he only intends to compete for another two years but has not yet fixed his plans for 2005.
Armstrong has been criticised for concentrating on the Tour de France too much in the past and has spoken about broadening his horizons.
One option is for the American to race a full programme of European classics.
And although the 33-year-old intends to contest the Tour again, he has not said when that will be.
Armstrong has just completed a training camp in his hometown of Austin with his team.
"I feel better than I have at other December camps," Armstrong said.
"I've got a clear head. I'm chilled out. I'm relaxed."
