Lance Armstrong wrecked and ended up with a bloodied face while riding the Tom Blake trail in Aspen, Colorado, according to an Instagram post from Armstrong.

The former professional road racer, Leadville 100 winner, and controversial athlete posted a photo on Instagram on Wednesday, August 8th of himself with a swollen nose and blood on his jersey.

“Well, sometimes you’re the hammer and sometimes you’re the nail!” said Armstrong.

Armstrong says that a younger version of himself would have blown off a hospital visit, but he now realizes the importance of seeking medical attention after a serious blow to the head.

Armstrong appears to be OK, although he did not mention if he would need further medical attention.
