Dauphiné Prologue – Sunday, June 5
Lance’s right hand man George Hincapie will be in yellow for the first road stage tomorrow following a narrow win in the opening time trial at Aix-les-Bains. Armstrong impressed too, with a good 5th place, which will settle his nerves about his form for the rest of the race and the Tour de France.

Results – ITT, 7.9 km
1 George Hincapie (USA) Discovery Channel 9.55
2 Levi Leipheimer (USA) Gerolsteiner 9.56
3 Andrey Kashechkin (Kaz) Crédit Agricole 9.58
4 Floyd Landis (USA) Phonak 10.00
5 Lance Armstrong (USA) Discovery Channel 10.01

Hutch makes it two…
Michael Hutchinson took the 25 title in emphatic style to add to his 10 mile title from last month. Stuart Dangerfield was a non starter and this left the door open to the ever green Gethin Butler who finished almost 2 minutes down for second place.
