Armstrong dramatically missed out on the yellow jersey by the slimmest
of margins here on Tuesday after his Astana team smashed their rivals
apart in the Tour de France's fourth stage time trial. Astana came over
the finish line of the 39km race against the clock 40-seconds ahead of
the Saxo Bank team of Fabian Cancellara, who began and finished the
race in the yellow jersey.
