CAP D'AGDE, France - Lance Armstrong was trailing race leader Fabian Cancellara by a fraction of a second as Tour de France riders left for the fifth stage along the Mediterranean coast.
Breakaway riders are expected to shine in today's 196.5-kilometre ride from Le Cap d'Agde to Perpignan, though the finale could also involve a sprint.
Armstrong, a seven-time Tour champion but written off by many cycling experts before the race started, came to within a whisker of the yellow jersey in the team time trial on Tuesday.
The Tour ends July 26 in Paris.
