Tour of California: Captain America Zabriskie takes podium
Sacramento's week of rain paused just long enough for the 136 cyclists in the Tour of California to speed through the 3.9km prologue. The argyle armada was led by two national time trial champions as tens of thousands of fans packed the state capital. Svein Tuft, sporting his Canadian speedsuit, was the first out of the chute for Team Garmin – and he set the bar high for everyone who followed. His 4:37.06 stood up to numerous challenges before finally falling, but it was still fast enough to land Svein in ninth place overall. Then it was time for the star to shine.
We're talking, of course, about the giant star on the chest of U.S. champion Dave Zabriskie's red, white and blue speedsuit, which would make Captain America proud. Zabriskie tore through downtown – we know because Jake was following in the team car, and we hope to put his video on our YouTube channel – and finished in 4:35.56, faster than anyone up to that point. When the day was done, Zabriskie's time held up for a third-place spot on the podium. Teammate Tyler Farrar finished 14th in 4:39.42, and proud new papa Christian Vande Velde was 22nd in 4:41.55. Steve Cozza, Tom Danielson, Trent Lowe and Tom Peterson round out the team whose next task is to go from Davis to Santa Rosa tomorrow. In the meantime, we'll try to get Jake calmed down enough from chasing Zabriskie to recap the thrill ride.
