Armstrong was surrounded by the media at the start in Waterloo this morning. He didn't face his Waterloo today, though. Iban Mayo -- One of the main contenders for the overall win -- lost almost 4 minutes. Thanks to Roadcycling.com reader David Dupont for sending us this photo.
Iban Mayo (Euskaltel) crashed in today's stage and lost almost 4 minutes to Armstrong, Hamilton and co. Tomorrow's team time trial should bury him once and for all. He will probably have to work for teammate Zubeldia, who will have a free hand now that Mayo has been eliminated. Photo copyright Fotoreporter Sirotti.
