U.S. cyclist Lance Armstrong hospitalized after bike crash

Lance Armstrong

Armstrong was on the Tom Blake Mountain Bike Trail in Snowmass Village when he got into the accident.

"Well, sometimes you're the hammer and sometimes you're the nail", the former Tour de France victor wrote, posting a picture of his bashed face. The Tom Blake trail (one of my faves) came up and tried to KO (knockout) my a- today.

"Deal with is Mexico Coming Along Nicely...Canada Must Wait".
But he reiterated his threat that tariffs on auto imports could be in store for the U.S. neighbor to the north: "Canada must wait".

In his post he also thanked the medical staff who treated him and added that he made a decision to get checked out at hospital as at 46 years old, he is more cautious about his health than he was in youth. The Postal Service paid Armstrong's team US$32.3m (NZ$49m) between 2000 and 2004 to ride under its express delivery logo.

Armstrong had to get checked out at the local medical unit, which he thanked for taking care of him. As reported by The New York Times in 2012, the former champion was stripped of his seven big victories after he was accused of doping before races. He later admitted to steroid use in January 2013. He also shared that he wanted to make things up to all those who'd felt betraying by his cheating, stating, "I will spend the rest of my life trying to earn back trust and apologize to people".
