What, me worry? 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 [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 8

Saturday, July 9th, 2005

The hills are alive . . . with the sounds of Armstrong. Lance Armstrong tackled the first hilly terrain of the Tour de France today, and came out on top. Not only is his overall lead still intact, but he increased it by five seconds over second place George Hincapie. Today’s stage began in Germany, [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 7

Friday, July 8th, 2005

Anyone else bored yet with these constant updates? Too bad. A fairly uneventful Stage 7 saw Lance Armstrong keep his overall lead intact through Week 1, but in tomorrow’s Stage 8 the riders head for the mountains. (For those of you new to the Tour, the hills are Lance’s specialty.) The fact that Armstrong and [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 6

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

Rain, rain, go the hell away! A miserable day in France kept the rider’s times slow, and the crashes high. Lance Armstrong came away unscathed after another close call during a crash, and kept his 55 second lead over George Hincapie. Possible Worry Alert: Armstrong’s advantage over Alexandre Vinokourov was narrowed to 1 minutes, 2 [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 5

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

Day 5 of the Tour de France was not without some suspense. Overall leader Lance Armstrong avoided a few crash after crash and kept his 55 second lead over teammate George Hincapie. While he didn’t win today’s stage, he is still in the catbird seat, and with Paris’ Olympic snub today, it’s a bad day [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 4

Tuesday, July 5th, 2005

Well, that didn’t take long. Lance Armstrong captured the yellow jersey of the overall leader today, when his Discovery Channel team won the Stage 4 time trial. Previous leader David Zabriskie crashed near the finish while riding with his CSC team. How fast was Team Discovery Channel? Take a look: “Armstrong’s team mates, who won [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 3

Monday, July 4th, 2005

Another day, another safe coast for Lance. Lance Armstrong stayed away from trouble in today’s sprint-fest at the Tour de France, but kept his second place overall standing. Tom Boonen won the stage for the second straight day, and American David Zabriskie kept the yellow jersey of the overall leader. Armstrong is still two seconds [...]

Tour De Lance: Stage 2

Sunday, July 3rd, 2005

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s two days in a row, but being a cyclist myself, I live for the Tour de France. I’ll have daily updates for those of you who don’t want to get up at 0830 (EDT) to watch the festivities (although the Outdoor Life Network (OLN) has terrific coverage). Today’s stage consisted [...]

Tour De Lance: 2005

Saturday, July 2nd, 2005

Today’s opening stage of the 2005 Tour de France saw American cyclists finished in four of the top six spots. David Zabriskie finished the 11.8-mile course in the top spot, but defending champion Lance Armstrong (well, he has been the defending champion for six years now!) ended the day in second, a mere two seconds [...]
