Lance Armstrong can kiss off another victory!
His chances of winning his 13th and last Tour de France are slim to none after getting caught in three crashes on Sunday. After the first crash, Armstrong's hip got banged up and he could not keep up during the tough climb through the Alps.
"My Tour is finished," said Armstrong, who placed 39th for the heat. "No tears from me. I've had a lot of years here where it's been very different, so I'm not going to dwell on today."
The stage was won by Andy Schleck of Luxembourg and world champion Cadel Evans of Australia took second place.
Lance took to his Twitter to share about his journey.
"When it rains it pours I guess Today was not my day, needless to say. Quite banged but gonna hang in here and enjoy my last 2 weeks."
But he is definitely trying to see the bright side!
"Obviously the Tour's finished for me, but I can try and win stages, try and help the team," added Armstrong. I'll "really try and appreciate my time here, and the fact that I'm not coming back."
It was a valiant effort, bb. No one can stay on top forever.
