Landis smacks the competition at Tour de Georgia time trial
Phonak's Floyd Landis "ran like he stole something" at today's Rome time trial.
Landis came in at 39:58 on a wet 18.6-mile course.
Lance Armstrong, who won this stage last year in 39:51, came in 9th on the day, at 41:44, trailing two of his own teammates, Tom Danielson, 7th at 40:58, and Viatcheslav Ekimov, at 41:19.
1) Floyd Landis, Phonak, 39:58
2) Dave Zabriskie, CSC, 40:17
3) Chris Baldwin, Navigators, 40:20
4) Bobby Julich, CSC, 40:26
5) Nathan O'Neill, Navigators, 40:41
6) Levi Leipheimer, Gerolsteiner, 40:48
7) Tom Danielson, Discovery, 40:58
8) Viatcheslav Ekimov, Discovery, 41:19
9) Lance Armstrong, Discovery, 41:44
10) Brian Vanborg, CSC, 41:45
The heat is on if Armstrong is to repeat as the overall winner. He's brought a very good climbing team, so he's not out of contention.
Pictures to come.
