Lance Armstrong crashes on European training ride when cat crosses his path

Maybe that old superstition about back cats is correct...you know it being bad luck and all when they cross your path.
Except that the cat that crossed Lance Armstrong path wasn't even black.
Anyway, it was certainly bad luck today for Lance Armstrong when a cat darted out in front of him on a four hour training ride.
The seven time Tour de France champion wrote on twitter:
“Back from a nice/easy 4 hr ride.” he tweeted followed by. “Well it
was nice til that cat decided to run out right in front me and I go ass
over bandbox. Wasn’t even a black cat. And for all you cat lovers, cat
was fine. At least I never saw it again. Bad kitty.”
Armstrong noted that all he suffered in the crash was some road rash. He's very luck that he didn't brake a collarbone like he did last year in Europe.
