PICTURE BY TIM DE WAELE Jens Voigt and Bobby Julich won Saturday's two-up time trial in Buehl, Germany, beating Gerolsteiner duo Uwe Peschel and Michael Rich by 1-22 over a 82-kilometre course. Lance Armstrong flew in for the race after competing the previous day in Prague and teamed up with George Hincapie to finish fourth, behind a second Gerolsteiner pairing of Sebastian Lang and Markus Fothen. More than 100,000 fans lined the 13.7-kilometre circuit, many of them drawn by the prospect of seeing the six-time Tour de France winner competing with his ever-present Tour lieutenant Hincapie. But it was another American who ended up on the top of the podium, as Julich shrugged off the injuries and bad luck that dogged him at the Tour to take a clear win with Voigt. "Jens and Bobby were totally psyched on winning today. They both came out of the Tour in absolute top shape, which led to a brilliant result down here. Andrea Peron and Kurt-Asle Arvesen finished fifth, which means, we've got some solid points for our efforts," said a very satisfied CSC director Kim Andersen. 1 Bobby Julich (USA)/Jens Voigt (Ger) CSC 82.2kmin 1.36.51 (50.92kph) 2 Uwe Peschel/Michael Rich (Ger) Gerolsteiner 1.22 3 Markus Fothen/Sebastian Lang (Ger) Gerolsteiner 1.53 4 Lance Armstrong/George Hincapie (USA) US Postal 3.33 5 Andrea Peron (Ita)/Kurt-Asle Arvesen (Nor) CSC 5.04
