Lance Armstrong severs left foot in hopes of making this year's Tour victory even more incredible

From the Wait 'til this Year Humor Vault

In his latest attempt to prove that he can overcome any ridiculous obstacle, cyclist Lance Armstrong chopped off his left foot Wednesday, making his upcoming Tour de France victory his greatest yet.

Armstrong overcame testicular cancer to win the Tour a record-breaking seven consecutive years from 1999 to 2005. Earlier this week, Armstrong crashed during a race and broke his collarbone, creating yet another hindrance to his stunning cycling comeback.

"I've always believed that I can do anything I set my mind to, overcome anything," said Armstrong while pedaling his hospital bed/bicycle, a unique contraption that enables him to train while recovering from any medical emergency. "These latest setbacks will only confirm this belief."

Armstrong added that he plans to win the 2010 Tour on a unicycle and hopes to be blind in at least one eye for his 2011 victory.
