Lance Armstrong Scared Post-Surgery

Lance Armstrong took to Twitter today, after getting behind the wheel for the first time since a nasty crash at the Castilla y Leon race in Spain left him with a broken collarbone. “Picking up my kids at school. First time I’ve driven a car since the spill. Scary,” he wrote this morning. previously reported on Armstrong’s successful surgery following last week’s accident. (After the procedure, Armstrong’s manager, Higs, wrote on the cyclist’s Twitter page: ““All went well…Same guy just 12 screws in his collarbone.”)

While the cycling star might still be skittish about driving a car, he’s hopeful that he can steer a bike come this summer. Armstrong uploaded some gory pics of his post-surgery incision to his Twitter account this weekend, but the ever-positive athlete says that despite the setback, he will still work toward competing in this year’s Tour de France. The race kicks off in July.
