Armstrong finished fifth, with Jimmy Engoulvent (Saur-Sojasun) winning the prologue to take the early lead of the race.

The Frenchman thundered through the course in three minutes and 41 seconds to finish ahead of teammate Cyril Lemoine by 8.1 seconds with Armstrong's teammate Gregory Rast less than one-tenth of a second further back.

Armstrong has happy memories of this race after having won it back in 1998.
