Final position in Thursday’s Stage 5: 58th Stage Highlights (from report): Robbie McEwen had another great leadout from a teammate and took his 11th career stage win in the Tour de France. Bobby finished safely in the bunch in 58th place. He looks forward to the stage 7 time trial. According to USA Today, today’s time trial is the first big test for Tour contenders. “Team CSC still has a plan, as we have some other bullets in the gun,” Julich says. “After the time trial it will be clear who the leader is.” Lance Armstrong on Bobby from wire reports: A strong presence by the Americans, including Bobby Julich, gives them as good a chance as any to win this year’s Tour de France, the seven-time champion said recently.”It’s a wide-open Tour,” Armstrong said. “I have no idea who is going to win. I don’t think anybody does. The interesting thing is that the American presence there is huge. I think we have a great opportunity.””His name doesn’t get mentioned when people talk about George Hincapie or Floyd Landis or (Levi) Liepheimer, but Bobby’s name perhaps should be mentioned,” Armstrong said. Up next: Today’s Stage 7, An individual time trial, from Saint-Gregoire to Rennes, 32.3 miles. This time trial will be the first stage where the real challengers are out to win the Tour.
