CAP D'AGDE, France (AP) - Lance Armstrong was trailing race
leader Fabian Cancellara by a fraction of a second as Tour de
France riders left for the fifth stage along the Mediterranean
Breakaway riders are expected to shine in Wednesday's 122-mile
ride from Le Cap d'Agde to Perpignan, though the finale could also
involve a sprint.
Armstrong, a seven-time Tour champion but written off by many
cycling experts before the race started, came within a whisker of
the yellow jersey in the team time trial on Tuesday.
The Tour ends July 26 in Paris.
