Stage 5 - April 27: Atlanta Circuit Race, 141.7km


4:05pm EDT 4km to go

There is a lot of attacking going on now. US Postal Service are trying to get away, as are Flanders - Iteamnova, but nothing is getting away.

Coming up the finishing straight now, Prime Alliance are driving on the front and its Alex Candelario dropping Clinger off with 200m to go.

Its close! Its a photo finish between David Clinger and Fred Rodriguez!

Clinger takes the win from Rodriguez and Moreno DiBiase in a very close third. Horner keeps the yellow jersey.

Tim Maloney just spoke with Clinger on the finish line. Clinger is elated with his win, "I've been struggling a bit lately with my knee injury and a couple of second places so now its nice to get this win. We kept ourselves very calm and waited until the right moment. I had a lot of help from my team and we really went for it. Rodriguez got boxed in on the right and I held him off".

I'm sure a reader called James P will be ecstatic about the win by Clinger as he wrote in to Cyclingnews earlier making this prediction.
