Scott Zwizanski was the standout rider for Kodakgallery.com-Sierra Nevada on the final stage of the Tour of California, which finished in a bunch sprint. Zwizanski was part of the four man breakaway that led for most of the race. "When we had over seven minutes and the gap was still going up, I though we might actually make it," Zwizanski said.
But when the Davitamon-Lotto started to ride for Fred Rodriguez, the gap came down quickly. It was 45 seconds at the start of the final lap, so team manager Jonas Carney instructed Zwizanski to try for the Most Aggressive Rider jersey. "I went about a mile before the final climb and I was by myself until the hill, but they caught me at the top and that was it. I'll rest up a couple days and I'll be rocking and rolling for next weekend," said Zwizanski, who was denied the jersey thanks to Glen Chadwick's efforts in initiating the break.
