(Newser) – Despite breaking his collarbone in a crash yesterday, Lance Armstrong should be able to ride in both the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, his team manager said. “A broken collarbone in the month of March does not at all compromise the start of the Tour de France or your performance in the Tour de France,” Johan Bruyneel noted, saying Armstrong’s riding in the Giro is also “perfectly possible," ESPN reports.
