Armstrong takes leader's jersey in Georgia
Lance Armstrong showed his off-season work on time trialing is paying dividends, as he took the climbing individual time trial at the Tour de Georgia Thursday afternoon.
The win puts Armstrong in the overall race lead, 24 seconds ahead of Jens Voigt, who had a similar double win in March at the Criterium International.
The strong Euro-based teams are starting to open up a lead in the overall classification (Tour de Georgia results page), as US Postal and CSC holding 5 of the top 6 placings in the GC. Chris Horner of Webcor has dominated the US scene over 2003 and the early season of 2004, and his 3rd place, 51 seconds back here in Georgia shows he's got the legs to race anywhere.
