Tour de France Prologue in Liege, Belgium

Sports Liege, Belgium - 30 June 2012

The Tour de France Prologue in Liege, Belgium, on June 30, 2012.

According to Yahoo/Eurosport.com, "Fabian Cancellara won his fifth Tour de France prologue on Saturday in one of the most emotional victories of the time-trial maestro's career.

The Swiss has not had the ideal preparation for the Tour, as he fractured his collarbone in April in the Tour of Flanders and his RadioShack team has been hampered by internal conflict and the withdrawal of team leader Andy Schleck through injury.

But Olympic and four-times world champion Cancellara clocked seven minutes and thirteen seconds in Liege, at an impressive average speed of 53.2kph, to beat Tour de France favourite Bradley Wiggins of Britain by seven seconds.

French time-trial champion Sylvain Chavanel was third in the same time as Wiggins. Defending Tour champion Cadel Evans finished a solid 13th, 17 seconds adrift."
