Lance Armstrong: look what you're missing

Lance Armstrong could be kicking himself when he sees Kate Hudson's smouldering new W shoot – the actress looks stunning in a series of sexy PVC-clad shots.

The star ditches her wholesome all-American image and oozes sex appeal as a futuristic vampy vixen.

The photo shoot – and the striking cover image - are sure to remind seven-time Tour de France winner Lance just what he's let go. The cyclist reportedly called time on his relationship with Hudson in July after just three months.

The couple first began dating after hitting it off on a holiday in Barbados in May, just after Hudson had split from on-off boyfriend Owen Wilson.

The relationship looked as if it was getting serious, with Kate enjoying outings with Lance and his children, and even introducing him to mum, Goldie Hawn.

But Lance reportedly began to feel pressurised by the swift pace at which the relationship was moving.

One insider told the Daily Mail: 'Lance felt that Kate came on too strong, too fast. She started talking marriage and babies almost right away. He freaked out at her clinginess and bailed.

'Lance realised he wasn't so committed to the relationship and shouldn't pursue it anymore.'

He may be having second thoughts about that decision now…
