ARMSTRONG AT PARIS-NICE. He's way back in the pack--140th, 27 seconds behind leader Jens Voigt--after the 4k Prologue of the 8-day Paris-Nice race. This is the Texan's first major European cycling competition of the 2005 season. Is it simply a typical slow start for the Tour de France champ? Or a sign of things to come?

  1. UPDATE: LANCE DROPS OUT. Lance Armstrong did not start the Thursday stage of the Paris-Nice race. Team Discovery Channel cited a combination of a jet lag and cold for the withdrawl. Not a very auspicious start for a long preparation needed for the Tour de France. Is Lance a contender or pretender? Stay tuned.
