Lance Armstrong CRASH (PHOTOS)

Lance Armstrong has suffered an eventful Thursday. Overnight, former (temporary) Tour de France winner Floyd Landis accused Armstrong of doping, a charge the seven-time champion denied in a meeting with reporters. But the day was just getting started for Armstrong.

Later on, the cyclist crashed while racing in the Tour of California. A spokesman told the AP that Armstrong received stitches near an elbow and an eye and was sent to the hospital for X-rays.
