Lance Armstrong's preparations for the Tour de France took another major blow yesterday when he crashed badly in the Tour of California.
Armstrong's coach Johan Bruyneel tweeted that Armstrong was involved in a "huge" crash and "had to abandon and is going to the hospital for X-rays".
Armstrong came down when a rider in the main group skidded on some gravel and fell, causing others to crash.
His right cheek was bloodied in the wreck and his right eye appeared swollen.
