Levi Takes California

Today Levi Leipheimer won his third Tour of California in as many years. This is an amazing race, and this year saw the strongest field ever.

Levi did everything right--climbed fast, attacked explosively, hung on when he had to, stayed (mostly) out of trouble. It was inspiring to see him launch one on Bonny Doon, answering all us critics who have thought him something of a boring wheel-follower. He's one hell of a strong and smart bike racer.
