Lance Armstrong After The Crash: X-Rays Negative, Face Not So Lucky

Lance Armstrong's tumultuous Thursday continued into the evening, and is now complete with X-rays and a picture of a gnarly cut that required stitches.

After his crash today in the fifth stage of the Tour de California, Armstrong took to his Twitter account to update everyone on his condition.

Armstrong then sent out a picture, showing exactly what happens when you crash in a cycling race and land face-first.
