Armstrong breaks collarbone, goes silent on Twitter

California Correspondent March 23, 2009 0

lancearmLance crashed today while racing at the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon in Spain, breaking his collarbone and putting him out of the racing circuit for at least 4-6 weeks.

Armstrong’s Twitter account has been silent for almost 24 hours, which leads to one of two possibilities: (1) he was trying to send a twitter message as he crashed (and lost his blackberry in the process), or (2) his right arm is in a sling and he can’t type lefty.

This photo of him leaving the hospital leads me to believe the second scenario is most probable — but I still like to think that he was trying to send a twitter update as he crashed.
