    OMG lance crashed / possible collarbone issue

    at the risk of being hated on by all of the "stop the lance threads" cronies, this may be notable:

    according to cnn, he was pointing to his collarbone.

    Offtopic but did Lance crash today?
    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    Lance rarely crashed post-cancer and even when he did pre-cancer, he'd bounce off the ground like it was rubberized. Damn chemo...

    That explains why his twitter posts have dropped off. Now what am I going to do with my life.

    I can't help but wonder whether Lance was a danger to himself and others in the peloton after the 3 yr layoff? I mean.. really. No major injury in 17yrs.. and this? He almost took out Brakovich in AToC. He got Leiphemer's front wheel once... and here we are.

    Debate!

    Leipheimer was the danger to himself in that case - not Lance's fault.
