Armstrong Tweets From Tour De France “Got some good “road rash” on the hip and elbow. Bike mangled, cleat on the shoe completely cracked in two. Hope it’s dry tomorrow”
Im guessing Lance will be ok and you can bet a fresh pair of shoes and cleats were ready to go.
Makes you wonder if they have a pair already broke in or if they anticipate needing to switch out foot gear in the middle of a race? I searched around google images looking for a shot of the crash and very few are available and it’s impossible to find a cracked cleat shot. They must treat his shoes like drug tests… hush hush.
So what does a former Tour champion lace up after a tough day of cobblestones and crashes? Some sweet custom Nike kicks of course! Apparently these are Team Radio Shack shoes made for Lance and Co by Nike. I like the high tech gray and red motive and the red eyelets look great. The soles almost put these over the top for me, but Im sure I could get used to them
