There should be quite a battle for the overall classification today and, amazingly, the top four GC riders from 2009's Amgen Tour of California are back once again in the top four this year.
In 2009 Levi Leipheimer entered the final stage with a 36 second lead over David Zabriskie, a 45 second lead on Michael Rogers and a 1:10 advantage on Jens Voigt and those time gaps remained true at the conclusion of the final stage.
This year the top four have been shuffled and the time gaps between the first three are tighter.
Today, Michael Rogers (HTC-Columbia) enters the Amgen Tour of California finale in the leader's jersey. The 29-year-old Australian leads David Zabriskie (Garmin-Transitions) by 9 seconds, Levi Leipheimer (RadioShack) by 25 seconds and Jens Voigt (Saxo Bank) by 1:12.
