carbon clavicle, anyone?

inForm Technology Aids in Lance Armstrong's Recovery
from:
http://www.bontrager.com/news/inform_technology_aids_in_lance_armstrongs_recovery/en dated 1st. April 2009.

Armstrong and equipment sponsor Bontrager, jointly announced that he was the world's first recipient of an inForm® Full Carbon Clavicle Upgrade

Few points there:
  • Bontrager not only sponsor bike equipment, but venturing into body replacement parts as well.
  • Clavicle Upgrade. Yup, you get lighter clavicle. I wonder if there'll be another surgery for the left clavicle - just so to balance things out.
  • There are always opportunities for every mishap.
  • There are unlimited ways to April Fool
'Nuff said. It woulda be cool, though.

Good timing, Lance's injury.
