Leipheimer at the start of a stage he won't likely ever forget.  In the moments before departure he seemed both focused and relaxed.  After realizing that he was still wearing his warm-up jacket, and that his team soigners had left him alone to prepare for 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 TTed his way into GC victory by a scant 4 seconds.
