American Levi Leipheimer (Gerolsteiner) will wear the first ever race leader jersey for the Tour of California into his hometown of Santa Rosa tomorrow, thanks to a strong ride in the short but tough prologue. "I've been dreaming about the possibility of winning the prologue here, wearing the first ever Tour of California leader's jersey in my home town, and I had a [good] feeling that with the steep climb up Coit Tower which is my strength," Leipheimer said. "It's really a dream come true for me, because I had been dreaming about it all winter. I've trained very hard. Words can't describe how special this is for me, especially tomorrow, coming into my hometown wearing the leader's jersey, it's really fantastic!"

Leipheimer led a contingent of five Americans on top of the podium today - all of whom who will likely be found on top of leader boards in July. Only five seconds behind Leipheimer is CSC's Bobby Julich, who surprised himself with such a strong early season ride. "I didn't really know my limits so I never got out of the saddle, and tried not to hurt myself too bad," Julich admitted. "I was totally surprised that I crossed the line and I had the best time. Then it held up almost to the end, but Levi kind of pumped all of us. I'm happy, gosh, first race of the year." But CSC Director Scott Sunderland was not as surprised by Julich's performance. "He's been good in training the last days, and motivation makes up for a lot."

Bobby was even more impressed with the attention the top riders are paying to this race - evidence that they value this race, even in its inaugural year. "This is February, it's not the Tour de France, but everyone is talking about reconning stages. I'm pretty amazed how the serious guys are taking this race. It's great for the future of the race. I wasn't quite planning on this competitiveness in February - most of the guys on the leader board today and thinking about July."

One second slower than Bobby was Discovery Channel's George Hincapie, who was most thankful just to be finished with such a violent effort. "I'm glad to have that over with. For three kilometers, an effort like that - you can't really train for it. It hurts a lot... extremely brutal." Hincapie chose to ride a road bike with aero bars because of the steep climb, as did his teammate Tom Danielson. "I ran a regular road bike - we did a little wind tunnel testing and both have similar drag coefficients," Danielson explained.

Floyd Landis (Phonak) also had a good ride, coming in less than a second behind Hincapie. "I felt pretty good today - something longer would be better."

In terms of teams, CSC and Discovery are well represented, with CSC taking three of the top six and Discovery posting five in the top eleven. This could be an advantage in that they have multiple riders who can contend for the overall. However, Gerolsteiner's pre-race plans are in step, according to Leipheimer, who is confident about his supporting cast. "With CSC and Discovery, they have more than one rider who can win the whole race. With us, the guys know how motivated I am and they come here to support me. They've been here for a week training with me, so they are ready."

Looking at the domestic teams, Health Net-Maxxis' Hayden Roulston sits in the best position at eighth. However, his teammate Nathan O'Neill looked set to be the first rider under the five minute barrier, until a mishap 150 meters from the finished resulted in the Australian time trial champion crashing into the barriers. "I was really ripping it up the climb," said O'Neill. "About 200 meters from the finish I shifted the front chain ring, and I'm pretty certain the chain came off. I stood up and went straight over the handlebars."

Even with that, O'Neill still finished in the top 25, only seventeen seconds off the lead. Team director Jeff Corbet was understandably upset with the day. "It's a big disappointment. We had a little bad luck today with Nathan and a technical issue. It's a lot of early season things. Everyone is scrambling to get TT bikes ready and tested. For Georgia, these bike would have had lots of races on them."

O'Neill is still motivated, after x-rays showed no broken bones. "Things can change a lot in the next few days."

In the best young rider competition, American Zak Grabowski (Colavita-Sutter Home) used the expertise of his captain Mark McCormack to ascend the tough climb. "McCormack said to keep it in the big ring - 53-21. When a guy like Mark gives you some advice, you listen to it. He gave me hints like staying wide on the corners and not the inside - using the flat section to get some speed up."

Leipheimer is probably the best rider to take the lead, as he knows this area the best. Besides the all important time trial on stage three, Leipheimer says that stage two will be important, which includes a tough climb close to the finish. "Sierra Road is very difficult," Leipheimer said. "I think the word is out now, they have all ridden it and have seen that it is steep. I was the first one to ride it, and I said, 'Don't tell anybody!' It's thirty kilometers from the finish, and it's a little bit tricky. I don't think you can do it alone - a small group can make it to the finish, and then it's who can time trial in that group."

Even though Levi is looking towards the Tour as his major goal, he is enthusiastic about racing in his home state - and is not worried about peaking at this point in the season. "It's February and July is a long way away. I can afford to take a rest after this, and then start training again. I'm not worried at all about being too strong in February. I would love to win the overall, but there are a lot of strong riders here. CSC has their Tour de France team here."
