Comeback cycling hero Lance Armstrong was admitted into Hospital Clinico in Valladolid, Spain, on Monday after crashing during the opening stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon.
I caught it as "breaking news" on Fox News. Heartbreaking but this is one injury that happens to most folks who crash on bikes. The world's watching how he will recover in time for the French Tour in July this year; I think he will. But I won't deny him taking a break and sitting out this one; but given the lousy economic climate, his race this race would be a nice distraction and an inspiration. So, for that, Mr Armstrong, please get well and get back on that bike seat, for all our sakes!
