Ljungqvist wins Paris-Camembert

Marcus Ljungqvist of Sweden won the Paris to Camembert cycling race on Tuesday. He finished the 208 kilometer race ahead of French pair Ludovic Turpin and Sandy Casar and Dane Lennie Kristensen after the quartet had broken clear. The 27-year-old Swedish champion owed his victory to a good effort by his Fakta team with particularly Denmark's Lennie Kristensen putting in a lot of work. Three-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong finished in 75th place, 8:52 behind the winner. Meanwhile 1998 Tour de France champion Marco Pantani, withdrew from the race. Copyright AFP2002
