As the Tour de France enters its 12th stage Thursday, five things to know: 1. TIME ON THEIR SIDE: Tony Martin took a speedy 36 minutes to complete the Stage 11 time trial. Then he had to wait more than four hours to find out nobody beat his time and he'd won the first individual time trial. Chris Froome, as the overall race leader, started last in Wednesday's stage and finished second to Martin by only 12 seconds. But the British rider also scored his own victory: He cemented his hold on the yellow jersey by gaining time on his top rivals for the overall title.

— Lance Armstrong has his favorites for the Amgen Tour of California, which begins Sunday with a trip from Nevada City to downtown Sacramento. Armstrong predicts the race won't be decided at least until Saturday's time trial that starts and finishes at LA Live in Los Angeles. "I think it comes down to the time trial," Armstrong said. "If I was looking at it as an analyst, I'd say Levi [Leipheimer], Dave [Zabriskie] and Michael Rogers will be the big three … I'm not sure the climbs are selective enough.

The fourth anniversary of the day Lance Armstrong was first diagnosed with the testicular cancer that nearly killed him is Monday. His friends and family, wife Kristen and baby son Luke, gather to commemorate the anniversary in exotic locales, and this year the setting will be Sydney. Armstrong had hoped to bring two more symbols of his survival--Olympic gold medals from the road race and the individual time trial.

There was the time she stopped before the finish line in San Sebastian, Spain, and dropped several places because of the inadvertent mistake. Then there was the meandering moped driver--perhaps fueled by too much red wine?--who took her out at the 1997 Tour de l'Aude in France during the final stage. Before, during and after, there were too many crashes and crying sessions. Bad luck didn't follow cyclist Mari Holden. It was right there with her, riding shotgun.

Greg LeMond called Dutch rival Erik Breukink the surprise of the mountain stages in last year's Tour de France. Although Breukink, 27, is best known as a time trial specialist, LeMond might have reserved judgment until reviewing recent cycling history. In 1988, Breukink won one of the most dramatic mountain stages in the Tour of Italy by withstanding rough elements and some of the world's best climbers.

SANTA ROSA - Tejay van Garderen rode his bicycle into a hotel meeting room Sunday as if he were corralling a bucking bronco. He reared the cycle up on its back wheel and slammed it down during a well-earned and well-deserved celebration. Van Garderen, a 24-year-old from Bozeman, Mont., took hold of the eighth Amgen Tour of California on Friday by winning the time trial in San Jose; kept his grip Saturday by not faltering on the climb up Mt. Diablo; and by Sunday he might as well have stopped and sampled some of the products at the wineries that dotted the countryside along the 80.7-mile final stage from San Francisco to Santa Rosa.

SURREY, England — Some of the women who sat upon a throne at Hampton Court Palace, a residence favored by King Henry VIII, met unhappy ends. Some of the cyclists who perched on the cushioned thrones set up Wednesday outside the stately building had happier fates: They got Olympic medals. Kristin Armstrong of Boise, Idaho, earned a place among cycling royalty by winning her second consecutive women's time trial gold medal, a remarkable feat considering she retired after the Beijing Games, had a son in 2010 and broke her collarbone in May as her comeback was gaining steam.

Wednesday's stage: This was the first climbing stage, featuring a hilltop finish at Sierra Road above San Jose after an 81.8-mile trip from Livermore. Winner: Chris Horner of Bend., Ore., and team RadioShack, left his teammate and three-time winner Levi Leipheimer behind with a late attack. Andy Schleck, 2010 Tour de France runner-up, finished second, more than a minute behind Horner. Leipheimer was fourth. Horner is having plenty of late-career success. At 10th, he was the top American at last year's Tour de France.

The federal civil fraud case against Countrywide Financial Corp. founder Angelo R. Mozilo and two other former company executives has grown far too complex to be tried in the three weeks allotted by the federal judge hearing the litigation, the defense says. U.S. District Judge John J. Walters in Los Angeles should instead allow eight to 10 weeks for the trial, lawyers for the defendants said in a filing Monday. The filing says the Securities and Exchange Commission, which brought the lawsuit, intends to call 22 witnesses and to introduce 2,000 documents as exhibits at the trial, scheduled to begin Oct. 19. That compares with an estimate of 10 to 12 witnesses made in November by John M. McCoy III, the head SEC lawyer on the case, said the attorneys for Mozilo, former Countrywide President David Sambol and former Chief Financial Officer Eric P. Sieracki.

Laurent Fignon, the Frenchman who won the Tour de France in 1983 and 1984 and lost to American Greg LeMond in 1989 in the race's closest finish, has died of cancer. He was 50. Fignon died Tuesday, the French cycling federation announced. Fignon said in June 2009 that he had an advanced cancer of the digestive system and was undergoing chemotherapy. He had been a television commentator in France since 2006. He worked through this year's Tour, his voice gravelly from his illness and treatment.
