I was sorely tempted to go to bed tonight instead of watching the end of the Tour of California stage. I had a long day and really could use the sleep, but I felt like the climb up Bonny Doon might get a little exciting. Between seeing how Armstrong’s legs are and seeing the overall race play out, I decided sleep would have to wait.
Boy, was I right to sit through the last hour.
Levi Leipheimer took control of the race in a big way today, with a serious attack. Starting off with a “Light it up, Popo” to get the super domestique‘s motor running, Levi then rode away from the pack and into the leader’s yellow jersey. Moves like that are exactly why I love bike racing. Great stuff.
