Every day, Gerolsteiner’s Levi Leipheimer sends his impressions of the Tour de Georgia to Cyclingnews. On Thursday, Levi finished sixth in the time trial:
"I was happy with my ride, but not so much the weather. More times than not I find myself time trailing in the rain. It was slippery and dangerous, especially on the descent halfway through the course. I rode it a bit too conservative but I was still going 100k/hr. Floyd told me he went all out down Mt Alto. He's great when it comes to descents (and ascents); if you didn't know, he was formerly a pro mountain biker. I felt good in my new position and just worked with Steve Hed on making some more tweaks to the bike. I ended up in sixth - now sixth in the GC too. But the real hard racing will start tomorrow when we hit the climbs."
