It was the ticking time bomb of a biological clock that imploded Sheryl Crow (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/entertainment/sheryl-crow-PECLB001204.topic) and Lance Armstrong (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/arts-culture/lance-armstrong-PEHST000083.topic)'s relationship in February 2006.

The Tour de France superstar is sharing details in advance of the July release of the book "Lance" (Da Capo) by author John Wilcockson. The New York Post excerpted some key passages on Friday.

Armstrong says that after he and Crow were engaged in 2005, two weeks before her 44th birthday, their relationship became "kind of a struggle."

"She wanted marriage, she wanted children; and not that I didn't want that, but I didn't want that at that time because I had just gotten out of a marriage, I'd just had kids [Luke, Grace and Bella]," Armstrong, 37, reveals in the book. "Yet we're up against her biological clock -- that pressure is what cracked it."

It took him this long to come up with a good excuse?

But I do applaude the use of time and secrecy to make up a quality excuse like that. It doesn't place the blame on anyone so everyone's happy.

The fact that her music is crap and she looks like a horse didn't play a role? Different stripes, I suppose.
