Sebastian Lang, German time-trial champion, finished fourth in the Tour's opening prologue, after a long spell in first place. "Fourth place is a super result," said the Gerolsteiner rider. "My goal was actually a place in the top ten, and I got that. Too bad that I was beaten so narrowly." His time was only five seconds behind the eventual winner Thor Hushovd.

Lang's boss, team manager Han-Michael Holczer, was happy to see the sporting aspects in the foreground. "After everything we went through yesterday, it was a great start. Sebastian led for a long time and placed us well in the scene."
