So the luck finally runs out. After coming in 2nd place in a popular 100mile mountain bike race a year ago in Colorado, this superman decides to make one last go at it. He is making a run at his 8th Tour De France title. However, a bike accident in a recent race in Spain may have thrown a wrench in his plans. He suffered a broken collarbone in the accident yet says he will still be ready for the Tour in a couple months.

You would think that after winning an unprecedented 7 tour de frances totalling around 21 weeks of riding and 14,000 miles of bike racing, he would have had enough. But NO, not this man, he wants to do it all over again. WOW.
