In what looked to be a thrilling bicycle race, Discovery Team racer George Hincapie won Stage 2 in a sprint finish, with Chris Horner and Josep Joufre Po of Davitamon Lotto following behind. They chased down a six minute breakaway led by Michael Creed of TIAA-CREF, Mads Kaggestad of Crédit Agricole, and local favorite Ben Jacques-Maynes of KodakGallery/ SierraNevada.
It appears that George Hincapie will take the leader's Gold/Yellow Jersey going into the individual time trial in San Jose tomorrow. Nobody guessed Hincapie would win, so nobody wins today's prize. Watch this space for another contest tomorrow.
Ben Jackques-Maynes, incidentally, rode today using the new SRAM road group.
