Sucks to be Lance

Lance Armstrong crashed out of the first stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y León with a broken collarbone. Apparently, someone overlapped wheels in the field and Lance went down hard in the cluster-crash. Did that myself during a training ride in1990, being the instigator in the overlapped wheel contest. Have to agree with Lance as to the effect on Mr. Psyche: "I feel miserable right now so I have to relax a few days."

Yeah, relax with some painkillers and then, as my orthopaedic surgeon Kent Davenport told me that year, take your time getting back on the bike and have a few cold ones in the interim.

Get well soon, Tex.
