Lance Armstrong is going to the hospital for X-rays after crashing during the Tour of California.
Armstrong's coach, Johan Bruyneel, tweeted Thursday that Armstrong was involved in a "huge" crash and "had to abandon and is going to the hospital for Xrays."
In full: Sorry to report there was a huge crash, with Chechu and Lance involved. Lance had to abandon and is going to the hospital for Xrays.
The cyclists were on a two-lane road outside the California town of Visalia a few miles into the race when a rider in the main group skidded on some gravel and fell, causing others, including Armstrong, to crash.
