Lance Armstrong crashed in the first stage of the Castilla y Leon race yesterday in Spain. Armstrong was transported via ambulance to the hospital where it was confirmed he did suffer a break of the right clavicle. Armstrong will return home to the States to make a decision on surgery options. “In 17 years as a pro I have been lucky to avoid one of the most common cycling injuries. The crash has put my upcoming calendar in jeopardy but the most important thing for me right now is to get back home and rest up and begin my rehab,” said Armstrong. Astana Team doctor Pedro Celaya was with Armstrong at the hospital. “Lance suffered a fracture of the middle third of the right collarbone as well as some bruises on his right hip and arm,” added Dr Celaya.

It is amazing not to read anything about the awesome sport of Cyclysm in our newspapers, (or for that matter, see anything on TV), until Lance Armstrong crashes and the big ‘come-back’ is put in jeopardy!
All of a sudden, even the local newspapers are dedicating a ‘half-size’ page to this!
And I am sure ESPN is running it on their ‘ticker’.
Versus??? Probably some more PBR!

You know this punk , seeing these pictures,
wishes he’d never thought of this escapade!
Lance knew exactly what to do with this
drug supplier…..
Looking close to the bottom picture, you can see
some of the guys getting a good laugh at this scene!
Whatever the case, don’t mess with Lance…

From Lance’s Twitter:

“Oh!!! And they recovered the bike!
Don’t have details yet, but it’s apparently on it’s way here.
Thanks to the Sacramento P.D. for the help!”

On February 1st, Lance wrote on twitter, “Why not?” and linked to the photo above.
He hasn’t made any additional comments about the bike or its purpose since then.
Is this a clue that he is thinking about an hour world record attempt?
Rumors about an hour record attempt at the new track being built in Montichiari (Brescia) surfaced last month, including comments by Francesco Moser.

…….in Austin, Texas!
The home of Lance Armstrong.
Perhaps having lived in Lake Como influenced his taste and style, you think? Wow.
Armstrong will be racing in the Giro d’Italia for the first time this year hoping to add a pink jersey to his collection of yellow jerseys.
True to his message of spreading global awareness about cancer research, Lance Armstrong’s Tour Down Under bike of choice will be a Livestrong inspired Trek Madone. This is a shot as the paint was drying on his new bike at Project One headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin. Lance’s official return to Pro Tour racing begins in two weeks in Australia.
