|Sticking with Lance and Beloki all the way up with a flippin broken collarbone, normal humans are off the bike for at least 6 weeks with that injury. And I think people need to be reminded that in cycling pain medication is ILLEAGAL. There are no cortizone shots before the race!!
I am an LA fan and believe he will take the Tour this year but he is DAMN lucky Hamilton was injured!

|Armstrong gets all the attention, but my god I can't believe the performance Hamilton is putting on. If he was 100% healthy, it would be something to be sticking with the leaders on these brutal climbs. But with a broken collarbone, it is just unbelievable.
What amazed me the most was that Hamilton is chugging L'Alpe and not just staying with the leaders, but Hamilton was constantly ATTACKING!!! He has a broken collarbone and he is ATTACKING on L'Alpe?!?!?!?!?!?!
His balls are so big, I swear he's gonna need a Burley to carry them.

|I'm sure he has some type of injury and in some pain but I'm really starting to wonder just how serious this "break" is ???? This may be one of the better "possum roles" being played out!|

|When did he fracture it? I had a very minor scafoid fracture in '99. It healed in only 4 weeks. But I couldn't even undress that first night. That continuous, dull ache didn't subside for 2 days. If he just did it, it has to hurt like a sunofah... Of course, you could be impervious to pain--most strong bike riders are.|

|Not to downgrade this man's grit, but one report mentioned that the collarbone was fractured, not broken, which means the bone will stay more or less in place, and not induce nearly as much pain in the surrounding tissue.
The same thing happened to me many years ago. Coming off Sugarloaf Mtn. in Montgomery County, MD, a bumblebee flew into the unzipped collar of my jersey and zapped my chest. I flew off into the woods and went over on my collarbone. It felt broken, but was only fractured, as it still moved as one piece.
Sugarloaf Mtn. is about 45 miles from DC. By the time I got off the mountain, the pain got no worse. I could hold onto the bars with the good arm, and pedaling actually felt therapeutic. Maybe endorphins were kicking in. Anyway, I decided I could ride home, and did. The pain almost went away, only felt when jerking on the bars in a climb or when stopping. X-rays showed the fracture, and it took the same 6 weeks to heal as a break would, but not necessarily off the bike.
I don't believe Tyler could ride with a true break. The stress on the break would be too aggravating. Bones won't knit back together if they're moving all the time. It takes 4-6 weeks for the joint to set. Then you can ride. But most fractures keep the bone in place, making it possible to ride.
