American cyclist Lance Armstrong is poised to win a record sixth consecutive Tour de France. On Wednesday, Armstrong won a grueling time trial in the Alps. He endured not only a twisting climb, but also hundreds of thousands of spectators who lined a mountain road leading to the Alpe D'Huez ski station. Adam Burke reports.
