Slipstream: day 5, stage 4, 2nd team overall


UntitledOne of the most challenging and defining stages of the 2008 Tour of California, stage 3, brought many strong overall results for team Slipstream. After winning the Leader Jersey in stage 2, racer Tyler Farrar had to leave the stage after the second climb due to illness. But the team kept on and finished the stage with one racer, Thomas Peterson, in the top ten, and several top performers in all five King of the Mountain results. Overall the team finished second for the stage, and with stage 3 results complied, team Slipstream has currently coasted into a nice second-place standing overall.

In just a short while, riders will take on stage 4, the longest stage of the Tour. This stage repeatedly taunts and teases the riders with hilly, technical terrain. The 135-mile stretch from Seaside to San Luis Obispo includes three King of the Mountains summits. If you can’t be there to see the Tour sights, you can watch the peloton span the beautiful seaside scene live on the tour tracker. We’ll have more updates tomorrow as we wrap up stage 4 and pedal into the most important stage of the race. So tuck your favorite Chipotle burrito in your pocket, strap on your Edge and let’s hit the road… or at least follow along with the professionals as they do it!
