Great race today down in Denver, though spectators were a little crankier than either Golden or Hoosier Pass. Chalk it up to the city heat, perhaps?
Taylor Phinney delivered with a great stage win, while Christian Vande Velde pulled out his ride of the year to pull ahead of both Tejay VanGarderen (2nd Overall) and Levi Leipheimer (3rd Overall). Here’s a few images from Colfax at 14th (below you can find the whole set).
Today was the end of an era, with George Hincapie completing the last professional race of his career. Adios George, you’ve been good to us cycling fans!
