Armstrong Yields Tour’s Yellow Jersey

MULHOUSE, France – Lance Armstrong is content to let someone else wear the yellow jersey at the Tour de France – for now. He surrendered the overall lead in the ninth stage Sunday, taking the pressure off his team as the Alps await and challenges with key rivals could begin in earnest.

Armstrong’s ultimate goal, however, remains unchanged: a seventh straight title at the finish in Paris on July 24 before he retires.

“We don’t need the yellow jersey,” said Armstrong, who is in third place, 2 minutes, 18 seconds behind the leader. “We don’t need to keep it in the Alps, we need to have it at the end.”

I had a little freak-out last year early on when Lance wasn’t on top. I’m not gonna do that again. He’ll get that jersey back . . . I promise.
