image for Armstrong Shrugs off TdF Injury Fears
Looks like it's bad news for the stand-in, again

Legendary cycle racer Lance Armstrong has insisted that he'll be able to compete in the Tour de France, despite fracturing his collarbone in an horrific crash last week.

The rider, who has won the gruelling TdF seven consecutive times, was injured in the Vuelta Castilla y Leon following a multiple pileup on the first day of the race.

Speaking from his home in the USA, where he is being comforted by wife Sheryl Crow while recovering from surgery to his clavicle, Armstrong shrugged off the shoulder injury, saying, "I'll ride one-armed if I have to. After all, I've raced one-bollocked for years".

Make Dungeekin's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
