BESANCON, France - If Monday's Tour de France time trial was "the test of truth" - as one top rider called it - then Bradley Wiggins aced it. The Olympic champion, aiming to be the first British winner of cycling's showcase race, sped to victory in the first big time trial, tightening his grip on the yellow jersey. "That was my physical best out there," he said. "It's probably my best time trial ever. " The race against the clock is a discipline Wiggins loves. And it showed in the ninth stage, a 25.8-mile ride from Arc-et-Senans to Besancon.

Holden achieved that yesterday in the U.S. Olympic Cycling trials contested on Mississippi's historic Natchez Trace, with a remarkably strong victory in a 40-kilometer (24.8-mile) time trial, an ordeal cyclists call "The Race of Truth.

Lance Armstrong made an impressive return as a serious contender for the 1994 Tour DuPont yesterday, and Greg LeMond conceded he has no chance to win the race this year. Those revelations came in the most tortuous part of the tour thus far - the Stage 5 time trial, a verdant, sadistic course that gave riders their first encounters with the Blue Ridge Mountains. Viatcheslav Ekimov, 28, a Russian who rides for the Holland-based WordPerfect team, covered the 22.9 miles the fastest and took the yellow jersey that identifies the overall race leader.

Miguel Indurain, chasing a record fifth straight Tour de France victory, took the yellow jersey yesterday by winning a tough time trial. Still, the rest of the pack was breathing a bit easier at the end of the day. As the three-week race enters the mountains, Indurain remains the overwhelming favorite. But in previous years, it has been in the race against the clock that Indurain has buried his competition. In the past, he consistently won by at least two minutes. Yesterday, he finished only 12 seconds ahead.

Lance Armstrong had come here to win gold. He had broken his neck in training, gotten hit by a car, and kept working to win one medal. "I went as fast as I could go," said the man who has a pretty fair knowledge of how far he can push himself. Yesterday, over a 49-mile course, Armstrong was 34 seconds short. Good enough for a bronze medal in the Olympic cycling time trial, his first Olympic medal in his third trip to the Games. But not the reason he had kept going after winning his second Tour de France in July.

The Tour DuPont starts earlier this year than ever before and will travel a more southernly course than it has on six previous occasions, but when the race starts tonight, one enduring question remains to be answered: Can Lance Armstrong finish one place higher than second? For the last two years, the 23-year-old Armstrong has been America's best hope for victory in America's best-known, multistage, professional cycling race. On both occasions, the ingenuous Texan who competes for Motorola has finished as the runner-up, losing precious time to his failings as a time- trial rider.

The implausible prospect of an American winning America's biggest cycling race became a virtual cinch yesterday when Lance Armstrong not only won the Tour DuPont's most important time trial, but shattered the course record in the process. Overpowering torturous terrain and the unrelenting clock for the second day in succession, the 23-year-old Texan needed 56 minutes, 32.263 seconds to get through the 22.9-mile Roanoke Valley time trial. He retained the overall leader's yellow jersey that he had won a day earlier.

The 86th edition of the Tour de France already firmly his, American Lance Armstrong attacked yesterday's 35-mile time trial so there could be no doubt about who was the most dominant rider in this year's race. Riding at a 31-m.p.h. pace, Armstrong finished in 1 hour, 8 minutes, 17 seconds, eclipsing the previous best time of the day - that of Switzerland's Alex Zulle - by 9 seconds. The win was the fourth this Tour by Armstrong, who took the prologue, the eighth-stage time trial at Metz, and the ninth stage's mountaintop finish in Sestrieres, Italy.

Lance Armstrong and the 1995 Tour DuPont got off to a promising start last night in the closest prologue ever for America's biggest multistage bike race. While the 2.98-mile time trial went to Gianluca Bortolami of the Italian team Mapei Clas, who covered the course in 6 minutes, 5.749 seconds, Armstrong came home third, only one second behind the leader and one place back of Andrea Peron, his Motorola teammate. Since fractions will be dropped from ensuing times in the overall race standings, Peron, Armstrong and Viatcheslav Ekimov, the Tour DuPont defending champion who was fourth, start today's Stage 1 road race essentially even.

After exerting almost dictatorial domination during most of the Tour de France, defending champion Miguel Indurain finally began to show fatigue yesterday. With only two days left in the Tour, Indurain survived a dramatic shake-up in the standings to retain his yellow jersey and the overall lead, but not before losing ground in his strongest discipline. Latvian Piotr Ugrumov stormed to victory in yesterday's 19th stage, a tough 29.5-mile individual time trial from Cluses to Morzine-Avoriaz.

In a two-hour summation Wednesday, Assistant U.S. Attorney R. David Walk Jr. showed jurors dozens of images of checks and documents that he said connected each of five defendants to a multimillion-dollar time-share scam. "It's a breathtaking array of lies," Walk said. Five defendants, two co-owners and three former employees of Vacation Ownership Group L.L.C., now known as VO Financial Corp., are charged with defrauding up to 225 customers from whom they allegedly took thousands of dollars promising to release them from time-share commitments.

Denny Hamlin won a NASCAR Sprint Cup race for the first time this year, holding off Matt Kenseth at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. The drivers appeared headed for a fuel-mileage finish Sunday. Then a late caution enabled them to make pit stops before a frantic five-lap sprint to the finish. Kenseth was the only person with a shot to catch Hamlin in the final moments. He tried to go both above and below the leader but was unable to pass. Kyle Busch finished third, giving Joe Gibbs Racing a one-three finish.

Spain's Alberto Contador closed in on his second Giro d'Italia title Saturday, comfortably keeping his lead during a next-to-last stage won by Vasili Kiryienka of Belarus after a solo breakaway. Contador finished eighth to maintain his lead of 5 minutes, 18 seconds over second-place Michele Scarponi in the overall standings. Vincenzo Nibali is third, 6:14 behind. It will take a mishap for Contador or a massive effort by Italians Scarponi or Nibali in the 19.5-mile individual time trial around the streets of Milan on Sunday to prevent Contador from winning.

Paul Tracy pushed his way to the front and held off rookie Robert Doornbos on the final lap to win his third Grand Prix of Cleveland yesterday, ending Sebastien Bourdais' three-race winning streak. Tracy was involved in two accidents early in the race, but the gutsy Canadian worked his way through the field and took the checkered flag, finishing .513 seconds ahead of Doornbos and another rookie, Neel Jani, who was 5.405 seconds back in third. The victory ended a 23-race winless streak for Tracy, whose last win came at Cleveland in 2005.
