Its a tight race with only a minute gap down to the 141rst rider and the first 80 riders within 30 seconds of Levi Leipheimers golden fleece of race leader. Levi will make his second home coming in as many years to his home town, but he and his Discovery mates will have to be attentive to be carry the gold jersey of race leader after stage one.
