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.
