BALTANAS, SPAIN -- Lance Armstrong has broken his collarbone
in a crash during a five-day race in Spain.

Astana team leader Johan Bruyneel says on his Twitter feed that
it was a clean fracture without complications. He adds that the
seven-time Tour de France champion should make a fast recovery.

Armstrong crashed Monday during a pileup in the first stage of
the Vuelta of Castilla and Leon race. He was taken to the hospital
by ambulance.

The 37-year-old Texan is making a comeback to cycling and is
riding with the Astana team as he prepares for another possible
shot at a Tour de France title. He had not raced in Spain for five
years.
