Colorado Governor breaks ribs in bike crash

Posted Mar 02 2010 10:02am

Riter Colorado Governor Bill Ritter crashed his bike today and broke several ribs after colliding with another cyclist his spokesmen said.

The Colorado Governor is an avid cyclist, and he has been meeting with seven time Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong about potentially bringing back a stage race to the state of Colorado similar to the old Coors Classic race.

You can read about those meeting HERE .

But those plans may be in doubt as Ritter has recently announced that he will not be running for a second term.

Lance Armstrong is a part-time resident of Aspen, Colorado.

According to the AP :

"Ritter was taken to Denver Health Medical Center. His condition wasn't immediately available, but his spokesman, Evan Dreyer, said the governor was in good spirits, laughing and joking with hospital staff and his wife, Jeannie.

The other cyclist had minor injuries and wasn't taken to a hospital, Dreyer said.

Ritter was in a group of four cyclists when the accident occurred shortly after 6 a.m."
