      BALTANAS, Spain (AP) – Lance Armstrong has broken his collarbone in a crash during a five-day race in Spain.
      Astana team leader Johan Bruyneel says on his Twitter feed that it was a clean fracture without complications. He adds that the seven-time Tour de France champion should make a fast recovery.

      Armstrong crashed Monday during a pileup in the first stage of the Vuelta of Castilla and Leon race. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

      The 37-year-old Texan is making a comeback to cycling and is riding with the Astana team as he prepares for another possible shot at a Tour de France title. He had not raced in Spain for five years.

      Matt Laurer goes down as well over the weekend. Must be a rough week for bikers.

      Yikes! That sucks, i’ve actually met the guy, he stayed at the hotel I worked at, and he was very nice, but when it comes to breaking bones, especially in a pileup, you just have to throw out your sympathy to them. But this won’t stop him from biking, not by a long shot!

      Lance is the Man. If anyone can come back strong and quick its him. Unfortunate accident. Can’t wait to watch the the TOUR this year. Had that happen (collarbone) to a friend while MTB a few years ago. We were at the back of the trail system and he had to ride out one-handed. Saw first hand how much it hurt. Wish Lance well….
