Discovery Channel and Health Net combined to take the final honours in the 3rd Dodge Tour de Georgia, which finished with a 201 km stage to Alpharetta on Sunday. After Discovery's Tom Danielson took over the general classification on Saturday, his team successfully defended his four second lead over Levi Leipheimer (Gerolsteiner). It was the 27 year-old American's biggest stage race win in his career, which has also included the Tour de Langkawi in 2003.
In the race for the stage win, Health Net delivered its sprinters Gord Fraser and Greg Henderson to a 1-2 finish in Alpharetta, which also gave Henderson the sprints jersey. José Luis Rubiera (Discovery Channel) claimed the mountains jersey after his sterling effort in last Friday's fourth stage, while Trent Lowe (Jittery Joe's) sealed the young rider's jersey and Discovery Channel took home the teams classification.
