Tour de Georgia Press Release
ROME, Ga. (April 22, 2004) – Five-time winner of the Tour de France, Lance Armstrong (USA), of the U.S. Postal Service Pro Cycling team, presented by Berry Floor, captured his second consecutive stage win at the Dodge Tour de Georgia today. Armstrong, with a final time of 39 minutes, 51 seconds won Stage 4, the Individual Time Trial, and captured the Dodge Leaders jersey on an epic double stage day, just hours after winning Stage 3 earlier.

Jens Voigt (Germany) of Team CSC finished second at 40’13”. Dodge Tour de Georgia defending champion Chris Horner (USA) of Webcor Builders finished third, 45 seconds behind Armstrong. In the General Classification (G.C.) after four stages, Armstrong is closely followed by Voigt, 24 seconds back, Horner in third at 51 seconds back, Brian Vandborg (Denmark) of Team CSC in fourth and Viatcheslav Ekimov of U.S. Postal Service Pro Cycling Team, presented by Berry Floor, in fifth.

The 18.6-mile Individual Time Trial began at the Darlington School campus in Rome and finished in downtown Rome, with a steep climb up Mount Alto midway on the course. When asked about the Mount Alto climb, Armstrong remarked, “The climb felt very familiar, it felt similar to a European climb. The speed for cycling was slow so people were able to run along side and yell and scream. It’s excellent to be going slow and be by yourself where you can interact with people.”

Stage 5 begins Friday at 10:00 a.m. in Dalton and will cover 139.4 miles over five Georgia Power King of the Mountain climbs en route to Dahlonega. The finish is expected at approximately 3:15 p.m.

Navigators' Report: Lance, Lance, Lance
After just a 3.5-hour break, the riders saddled up again for the 18-mile Individual Time Trial. This was no ordinary TT, as the riders had to race through wind-swept fields, up numerous hills (some requiring 39x23 gearing), negotiate fast, twisty descents, and battle the imperfections found on typical inner-city surface streets, throughout the point-to-point test. There's not too much to say about 'the race of truth', except that the strongest man usually wins. Lance showed his usually aggressive style, and posted the fastest intermediate times on his way to victory, with a posting of 39:51, the only rider to go under 40-minutes. Navigators' Chris Baldwin and Phil Zajicek posted good rides and spent some time on the leader board, until the latter stages of the race. Baldwin posted a 41:22, good enough for 8th on the stage.

Mark Walters will begin the tough stage-5 road race in the KOM Jersey, while Armstrong sits on top of the Overall Classification. The race has quickly become a battle between Lance, and his US Postal team, and the team of CSC.
