OMG - What a nail-biter finish for today's Stage 6 of the Amgen Tour of California. A hold-your-breath chase led by Discovery Pro Cycling Team, who gathered up Health Net and T-Mobile to assist them. Only one lap of the circuit left and the DC guys closed the gap. Everybody was thinkin' Hushovd or Bettini, and out of nowhere came JJ Haedo to take the sprint. JJ wasn't wearing his green jersey, so was able to sneak up the side. Was that on purpose - a clever CSC strategy? Whatever - it worked... JJ really motored.

I watched and listened on the Tour Tracker - Robbie Ventura and his side-kick Joe did a great job commentating. Love the Google map tracking....

So Levi Leipheimer stays in Yellow, but he must have been pretty worried there at the end. Those guys were haulin A - they were just thundering around the circuit and O'Grady gave his all with the good fight. That guy has guts and legs to go with it...

What a race...
