2011 Tour de Suisse Stage 9 - Leipheimer at the start of a day he won't likely ever forget.  In the moments before departure, Leipheimer seemed both focused and relaxed--after realizing that he still had his warm-up jacket on and that his team soigners had left him alone to prepare before the start he joked, "Hey, I think my team just ditched me."  He asked a race official to take his jacket to the RadioShack chase car and then TTed his way into GC victory by a scant 4 seconds.
