Today, in the Tour of California prologue, Lance Armstrong made his comeback and finished 10th. "It's a new sensation because I haven't trained for efforts like that," Armstrong said after completing the 3.9-kilometer course around California's state Capitol. The prologue was won by Fabian Cancellara. Cancellara, a former two-times time trial world titlist, won in 4:32.9 seconds, with American Levi Leipheimer, twice defending race champion, second in 4:34.11. Third was American David Zabriskie in 4:35.55.

I understand that that is not unusual for a tt, but what is impressive for me is that he took a couple of years off and is still keeping pace with the best TT rider in the world. (I am trying to think of a TT that Cancellara hasn't won) My point was I was expecting him to be in double digits down (like 10-20 seconds) and just sort of mixed in with the field.
