Tour of California Stage 7

Rinaldo Nocentini (AG2R) put one over a very elite break, including the likes of Fränk Schleck and George Hincapie, to take the win at the end of Stage 7 in Pasadena. It was the first showing from AG2R in this year's ToC, but he and his teammate, Martin Elmiger, were very animated in the final circuits leading up to the finish.

Overall, Levi Leipheimer holds onto his 0:36 lead over Dave Zabriskie, with only one stage to go, albeit possibly the toughest stage of the race.
