Lance and Ed Ruscha talk art and Ed plans his next masterpiece based around Livestrong' new bionic clavicle...

There's only one superhuman whose life that headline could apply to in reference to the span of a mere two weeks. Of course, the freak of nature in question just happens to be Supertouch's own resident cycle killer LANCE ARMSTRONG. After debuting his new KAWS designed TREK MADONE in the legendary MILAN-SANREMO race on March 21st only to crash it and his now shattered collarbone in the Spanish classic VUELTA CASTILLA Y LEON race two days later, the seemingly indestructible hard charger is now the proud owner of a new clavicle implant that looks suspiciously like twelve drywall screws and a piece of old bender board. Of course, we gave up a career in professional sports medicine and surgery years ago so our frame of reference might be a bit outdated. Now on the mend and back on the bike in preparation of his scheduled runs in June's GIRO and the TOUR DE FRANCE in July, ol' Livestrong managed to log some bro time at the house in Austin last week with visiting LA art legend ED RUSCHA who was in town for a lecture at UT.  Currently hitting the mountains hard at altitude in Aspen, the man with nine lives is proving that the term unstoppable was in fact originally coined in reference to him. Keep an eye on ST for updates from the road, and a sneek peek at Lance's upcoming round of new artist-designed race bikes. HAVE A LOOK:
