Lance Armstrong blew a tire in Stage 3 and lost some time against last year’s winner Albert Contador. He also fell into 18th place in the race (but, ironically, picked up time against the leaders).

After 3 stages–and before any of the critical mountain stages–Lance is about 1 minute behind Contador and 2 minutes 30 seconds behind the leaders.
