Armstrong: Bad timing caused Crow split

Professional U.S. cyclist Lance Armstrong said his romantic relationship with singer Sheryl Crow ended due to bad timing.

The seven-time Tour de France winner admits in the upcoming biography Lance that he and the All I Wanna Do singer had different ideas regarding marriage and children at the time of their relationship, the Chicago Tribune reported Sunday.

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 says in the new book from John Wilcockson.

Yet we're up against her biological clock -- that pressure is what cracked it.

Armstrong and Crow, who was his fiance, ended their relationship in 2006.

I felt like I wasn't ready. ... I would have been in the future, but not then, the cyclist offers in the book due for release in July.

The Tribune said Crow adopted a 2-week-old boy in May 2007, while Armstrong and girlfriend, Anna Hansen, are currently expecting a child.
