Lance Armstrong Is "Fine and Resting Up" After Bike Accident

The 46-year-old athlete badly injured his face and was forced to go undergo a medical check in a local hospital to find out whether his head was injured in the crash.

No matter how good you are at something, eventually you're going to fall on your face doing it. Lance Armstrong learned that lesson in a very literal sense while riding his bike near Aspen, Colo., when he fell off his bike and bloodied his face.

The Tom Blake trail is in Snowmass Village, Colorado, and it's listed as an "intermediate" trail on the town's website.

Mountain biking is so damn fun. It's not clear what caused the 7-time Tour de France champion to wipe out.

Armstrong won seven Tour de France titles with the U.S. Postal Service team but he was stripped of those titles after admitting to using performance enhancing drugs. He denied doping for more than a decade, but later came clean to Oprah.

Before he entered the meeting, Guajardo said Mexico was getting close to overcoming sticking points with the United States. Trump went on to warn that he would tax Canadian auto exports if Washington and Ottawa could not arrive at a deal.

"Well, sometimes you're the hammer and sometimes you're the nail", Armstrong wrote on Instagram.

The famous cyclist was exploring the Tom Blake trail in Colorado when the accident occurred, Sports Illustrated reported. For the 46 [years] prior to today I completely would have blown off getting checked. Well, that "dude' turned out to be @ajaxrider - the ER doc on duty today!"

"Charlie, thanks for looking after me", Armstrong wrote, sending his appreciation to the doctor.
