LIEGE, Belgium -- It's a valid question: Did Tour de France organizers design a course specifically to thwart Lance Armstrong's drive for a record sixth win?
 

The course favors some of Armstrong's strongest rivals and blunts some of his own particular strengths. But Armstrong says he believes organizers are just aiming for spectacle.

Bottom line: The five-time champion thinks the best man will win -- and he's steeling himself for his hardest Tour yet.

"The race will be tight, will be very tough to win," he said from Liege, where the three-week race begins Saturday.

At 32, Armstrong admits he may be beyond his best. His 61-second win over Ullrich at the finish last year in Paris was by far his narrowest and shakiest Tour victory, cracking the champion's aura of invincibility and giving his rivals hope of dethroning him this year.
