Leipheimer continues to show his early-season TT form with a dominating 41-second win over David Zabriskie. Brajkovic was able to leap into the overall lead by easily besting Canada's TT. Today's results show what might have been: with Leipheimer, Zabriskie, O'Neill, and Danielson in the top four, they could have been the ones fighting for the overall win. But either storyline is good for Discovery that is now starting to dominate this TdG. Discovery and CSC split most of the glory in the ToC, but we're still waiting to see some sparks from CSC in the TdG. Christian Vandevelde is sitting in second overall, so it now looks up to him or JJ Haedo to start putting CSC on the board.

It has definitely been an interesting race. I am heading to Georgia tomorrow and I am looking forward to watching Liephiemer and Danielson working hard for Brajkovic on that climb up Brasstown Bald.


@James: I hope you have a lot of fun out on the climb tomorrow -- I definitely wish I was there. Part of me is hoping for some sort of bold breakaway from the half-hour behind pack. A lot of teams have riders that no one is worried about in the overall anymore.
