The old lion, fastest of the contenters
And so it begins, le Tour!
Armstrong, 7 times winner .. Undisputably the greatest tour rider of all time. Last year in his comeback despite team issues and injuries, 3rd place.
Last night, he's the fastest of the real contenders in the prologue. His team mates, right up there too (team time trial form is therefore very good) Early days, yes .. but ominous. It's going to be another fantastic tour.
