Lance Armstrong Updates and links, you are in our prayers

Statement from Lance Armstrong after injury
(from his blog - links below)

Lance Armstrong crashed in the first stage of the Castilla y Leon race today in Spain. Armstrong was transported via ambulance to the hospital where it was confirmed he did suffer a break of the right clavicle. Armstrong will return home to the States to make a decision on surgery options. “In 17 years as a pro I have been lucky to avoid one of the most common cycling injuries. The crash has put my upcoming calendar in jeopardy but the most important thing for me right now is to get back home and rest up and begin my rehab,” said Armstrong. Astana Team doctor Pedro Celaya was with Armstrong at the hospital. “Lance suffered a fracture of the middle third of the right collarbone as well as some bruises on his right hip and arm,” added Dr Celaya.

I have been excited to find out there may be a biking trek in Ohio this year, I hope this does not change that. Lance's bravery facing cancer and political barriers while advocting for cancer patients everywhere is admired. I am a LIVESTRONG delegate and hope to attend the next Summit and will update you as soon as I know when that is. Lance, you are in my prayers - LIVESTRONG!
