He (Alberto Contador) is the leader for now

-Lance Armstrong, after finishing behind 3 of his Astana teammates, including Spaniard Alberto Contador, in the Tour's opening prologue.

Does Armstrong's attentiveness to changing conditions and smart riding, which today propelled him into the break initiated by strong side winds that cause the peleton to form echelons, change overall leadership at Astana? LA now sits in third overall, ahead of his Astana teammates, notably Alberto Contador. For now, indeed.

That pic of Lance is actually pretty scary. He's crafty, and I'm not counting him out yet.
