Tour of California 2006 — Stage 1

February 20, 2006 (Santa Rosa, CA) — Juan Jose Haedo (Toyota-United) won Stage 1, a 129K circuit from Sausalito to Santa Rosa, as an emotional Levi Leipheimer (Gerolstenier) kept the leader’s jersey finishing 22nd, as the stage ended in Leipheimer’s hometown. Top Canadian was Charles Dionne (Saunier Duval-Prodir) in 13th.

Tomorrow’s Stage 2, 152.7K from Martinez to San José, brings some tough climbs, a category four and a category one climb as well as two intermediate sprints.
