Lance Armstrong had surgery last week to repair the broken collarbone he received during a crash at the first stage of the Vuelta of Castilla and Leon race in Spain. He reportedly had a five-inch steel plate inserted to repair the collarbone, which was broken in four places. Armstrong has said that the injury will not keep him from riding for his eight Tour de France title this summer. He’s even planning on riding the Giro D’italia, which takes places in a little over six weeks. According to the regular updates on his Twitter page Lance already “got on the spin bike for half an hour” on Saturday.
