California homeboy Levi Leipheimer of Team Gerolsteimer won the Amgen Tour of California prologue today, winning the 1.9 mile sprint in 4 minutes, 53.43 seconds. Team CSC's Bobby Julich came in five seconds later, while George Hincapie of Team Discovery followed a second later with Phonak's Floyd Landis right on his tail. Dave Zabriskie of Team CSC finished out the all American top five.

An estimated crowd of 200,000 people noisily cheered on each of the 128 riders in the Tour of California Prologue.

See the Tour of California website for the complete leaderboard. The TOC website also has video of Leipheimer's win and other Tour highlights.

As of right now, Flickr reports 167 photos tagged with "tourofcalifornia".

Chris Baldwin has about the best commentary on the Prologue I've seen so far.

    IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
FYI, we have over 200 contributed photos and video (more than flickr) from the prologue organized by timeline and not randomly by upload time. We also have better quality video (with sound for Mac and Windows users) than you'll find on the official site.
