Lance Armstrong is recovering from a bike crash that left him bloodied and sent him to the hospital.
The controversial former pro cyclist revealed his busted face and said he was riding one of his favorite mountain bike trails in Colorado, The Tom Blake trail, and crashed pretty hard, joking that “Well, sometimes you’re the hammer and sometimes you’re the nail!”
“Took quite the blow to the noggin’ so swung by the Aspen Valley Hospital to get my head checked,” Armstrong explained. He also said that in the past he probably would have blown off a trip to the hospital, but “not now.”
He doesn’t give specifics to any injuries, but the implication is Armstrong will be good to go with some rest, ice and probably a lot of Advil.
