Armstrong fined

Stage 3 didn't go quite according to plan for Lance Armstrong. He started the day without signing in and ended up with a 100 Swiss Franc fine when the Jury of Commissaires caught up with him.

The six-time Tour champ, who is one step closer to knocking on seven's door, seemed relieved to get the stage over with today. "I was glad nobody fell in front of me in the finale...then there was just 3k straight in to the finish."
