2008 Tour of Georgia - April 21st - 27th

The Tour de Georgia gets underway in the Peachtree State tomorrow and ends Sunday. It should be a battle royale against some of the best teams and riders in the world. The first few days are tailored for the sprinters, so look for SoCal's Ivan Dominguez (Toyota-United) to pull out some wins. A team time trial takes place Thursday, on Road Atlanta's 2.5-mile, 12-turn track. This should be a good one to watch. Since the teams can't use time trial bikes due to the course being too technical in some turns, this will be a great equalizer to see who has the strongest team based on strength and not equipment. Look for a throwdown between Astana's Leipheimer and Horner and Rock Racing's Botero and Sevilla up the mountain-top finish of Brasstown Bald.
