Armstrong in yellow

Lance Armstrong's US Postal team has won the team time trial at the Tour de France, putting Armstrong in the yellow jersey for the first time this year.

Can he stay there? The climb up L'alpe d'Huez will tell. Unfortunately, it looks like Iban Mayo won't be in any position to duel it out with Armstrong or Ullrich in the mountains.

Yeah, he said his team wouldn't expend any energy chasing down breakaways this early in the race. If he lost the yellow jersey, so be it.

Need to save that energy for the mountains...
