Lance Armstrong broke his collarbone in a crash during the first stage of the 2009 Vuelta a Castilla y Leon race in Spain. Armstrong, ever the warrior, quickly posted the following comment to his twitter site, ""I'm alive! Broken clavicle (right). Hurts like hell for now. Surgery in a couple of days. Thanks for all the well wishes."

Armostrong has yet to comment on how the collarbone will effect his plans to race the 2009 Tour de France. However, the Associated Press is reporting that Astana manager Johan Bruyneel, is confident that Lance Armstrong's broken collarbone will not prevent him from taking part in either the Giro d'Italia (May 2009) or the Tour de France (July 2009) .
