The crowds in Sacramento this afternoon were monstrous and much larger than any I've seen before at the Tour of California. A world class peloton proved to be a huge draw as thousands of fans lined the race course in downtown Sacramento, which some compared to the crowds at the Tour de France. Rain threatened but stayed to the west of Sacramento throughout the entire race.

Fabian Cancellara of Saxobank took the podium with a winning time of 4:32.90. Astana's Levi Leipheimer followed at 4:34.11, with David Zabriskie taking third with his time of 4:35.51.

You can find full results and links to video and other resources by visiting Steephill.TV Tour of California dashboard. Dave Bernstein is editing audio for the FredCast cycling podcast right now, and Ken Conley is massaging his photos for upload and sale. I'm uploading my Tour of California photos now to Flickr.com/Bike.

Next stop: Davis to Santa Rosa.
