Lance Armstrong in Stitches after Bike Crash

5/20/2010 8:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lance Armstrong ate some serious pavement today during the AMGEN Tour of California -- suffering a nasty cut under his left eye that required eight stitches.

Luckily for Armstrong, he didn't suffer any major injuries -- but he still had to bow out of the competition due to the cut and a banged up elbow.

This must have happened when he found out Landis snitched on him.

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To buy some steroids from Lance Armstrong.

And is anyone really surprised about the doping revelations? These coddled and overpaid athletes are all the same, spoiled children doing whatever cheating it takes to win. Lance should be ashamed, but he will just make excuses, or find Jesus, or go into some high priced rehab...typical celebrity hypocrisy, and stupid fans will "forgive his sins", and the drugging and sinning goes on and on! We all should just shun these bozos, turn our backs, do not patronize their events or buy the rubbish they endorse.

first and foremost you have to admire lance beating the odds...10/10

but he is at the end of the day just a fame whoring atheist!!!

His properties use all the water in Austin and he thinks hes Elvis???

It's more than obvious that Lance is past his prime.

This "accident" comes suspiciously on the heels of the performance enhancing drugs/blood doping accusations, doesn't it? If he won, and as usual when someone is under suspicion or close scrutiny, he'd probably have to take tests...which he might fail. Better to fall off your bike and live to ride another day, with your image intact.
(probably wasn't expecting the gash, though)

Lance has never tested positive for doping. To imply he is guilty without a positive test is wrong. Landis lied for years, defending himself and lying in a court of law, when he tested positive more than once! Now Landis is saying he lied, and that everyone is guilty? Way to try to take everyone down with you! Landis has ZERO credibility!!! Lance has been tested MORE THAN ANY OTHER ATHELETE and ALWAYS has come back CLEAN. The proof is in the pudding here folks.

Thats what he gets for lying and cheating the game. Has the nerve to wrap himself in an American flag and say how great he is. Oh but the folks on ESPN will lick his boots and call him a hero so as not to jepordize their jobs. What frauds...go to Hell you lying cheating on ball jackass !!
