SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Lance Armstrong is bragging about his bike skills on Twitter.

Apparently he can pedal fast than the Vice President.

The former bicycle racing champion and Texas native sent out a tweet on Saturday about how he encountered Vice President Mike Pence on a bike path in Massachusetts.


“I can’t drop many people on a bike these days, but I just blew the fuckin’ doors off Mike Pence on a Nantucket bike path. Day. Made.”

Some supporters came to the defense of Pence, reminding Armstrong that the VP is older and was never a professional cycler.

Armstrong is 47.  The Vice President is 60.

But Armstrong didn’t backpedal from his comments…much.

He sent out another tweet hours later about how some people can’t take a joke and told them to “lightin the fuck up”.

Pence was on the island for private fundraiser.

Armstrong, was born in Plano, Texas and still has homes in the Lone Star State.

He had been a 7 time Tour De France Champion but his titles were taken away because he was using performance enhancing drugs.
