Lance loses yellow jersey

CHARTRES (France): Lance Armstrong lost his Tour de France leader's yellow jersey to French champion Thomas Voeckler but it could have been much more on a rainy, windswept 200.5km fifth stage from Amiens yesterday. 

Voeckler, who became French champion the week before the Tour on his 25th birthday, was part of a five-man breakaway which reached Chartres with a 12-minute lead over the main bunch that included Armstrong, the five times Tour champion.
