Lance Armstrong breaks collarbone

According to an Associated Press story:

Lance Armstrong fractured his collarbone Monday during a race in Spain, leaving in question his participation in the Tour de France in July. . .

"We'll go from there," he said. "I think for the Tour it's a very big problem."

Armstrong was knocked off his bike during a pileup in the first stage of the Vuelta of Castilla and Leon race and was taken to a hospital by ambulance. . . .

Astana team leader Johan Bruyneel said on his Twitter feed that there were no complications in the break, and suggested Armstrong could be back riding soon.
Astana, Armstrong's team, has recently committed to participating in the 2009 Tour of Missouri.
