Michael Rogers is the aforementioned Australian that looks like he's going to ruin Levi's party. Here he is going down the little steep hill in the race today:

Tomorrow's final stage is a slightly hilly ride in Thousand Oaks.
Yesterday, the riders rode 135 miles from Palmdale to Big Bear, taking Angeles Crest Hwy on the way to Rim of the World Hwy at Big Bear. It was special watching them (from my computer) ride in places I've very much enjoyed riding in before.
This is on Angeles Crest Hwy, this side of Wrightwood.
(Thank you Graham Watson and associates for the picture.)
And, a more scenic shot, from one of my favorite places on CA-2/Angeles Crest, at about 7000'.
