Lance Armstrong posted a photo on social media Wednesday of his bruised and battered face, the injuries sustained after wrecking his bike on a Colorado cycling trail during the weekend.
Armstrong was on the Tom Blake Mountain Bike Trail in Snowmass Village when he got into the accident.
“Well, sometimes you’re the hammer and sometimes you’re the nail,” he wrote in the Instagram caption, adding if the fall would’ve happened when he was young, he would’ve avoided the hospital at all costs.

Well, sometimes you’re the hammer and sometimes you’re the nail! The Tom Blake trail (one of my faves) came up and tried to KO my ass today. Took quite the blow to the noggin’ so swung by the Aspen Valley Hospital (great facility!) to get my head checked. For the 46 yrs prior to today I completely would have blown off getting checked. Not now. Small world story – a few weeks back I posted a pic of @ghincapie, @mikekloser, and myself. Credit photo to “some dude at top of buttermilk”. Well, that ‘dude’ turned out to be @ajaxrider – the ER doc on duty today! Charlie, thanks for looking after me.
