Yesterdays news of Lance Armstrong's crash at Castilla y Leon was an amazing example of just how fast we can get news about cycling online these days. I was reading the first tweets from Neal Henderson in Poland before I heard anything from my browser's major new blasts. Within the hour I was watching video of Lance sitting along the roadside, reading reports from his teammates, and injury outcomes from his director sportif. Then by the evening we could all see pictures of Lance in his sling eating crackers and cheese with Johan Bruyneel. And I didn't go looking for any of this - it was all delivered to me via Twitter. This is an amazing world we live in.
Also very entertaining - Neal has been sending out some funny Twitpics (photos on Twitter) from Worlds Poland lately!
