Biggest setback in Lance’s cycling career?

Wow I guess cancer was like a bad cold or something. What is wrong with his reasoning, “This is definitely a setback, no doubt. It’s the biggest setback I’ve ever had in my cycling career, so it’s a new experience for me.” Umm yeah Lance you are so myopic.

Armstrong will have surgery Wednesday

AUSTIN, Texas (AP)—Lance Armstrong is planning to ride in the Giro d’Italia in
May even though his broken collarbone is a bit more serious than first thought.

“I think the Giro is still very doable,” the seven-time Tour de France
champion said Tuesday night during a conference call with reporters. “This is
definitely a setback, no doubt. It’s the biggest setback I’ve ever had in my
cycling career, so it’s a new experience for me.”

Although initial indications were it was a clean break, the 37-year-old
American cyclist said new tests in Austin showed “multiple pieces” of broken
bone.

He will have surgery Wednesday, and Austin sports medicine specialist Dr.
Douglas Elenz, an orthopedic surgeon, will insert a plate to stabilize the
collarbone.

“I think they try to put the puzzle back together,” Armstrong said.

Armstrong crashed Monday in the first stage of the Vuelta of Castilla and
Leon race in northern Spain.
