Tour of Utah, Stage 2: Too Little, Too Late

20. August 2010

Mt. Nebo, Utah

Brent Bookwalter's 11th-place finish proved to be the BMC Racing Team's top performance Thursday on the challenging mountain-top finish at Mt. Nebo at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

Hincapie Crashes

Bookwalter was one of three BMC Racing Team riders in the top 10 before the 129-kilometer race. But he and Jeff Louder couldn't match the pace of stage winner Levi Leipheimer (Mellow Johnny's) and George Hincapie crashed out after hitting some gravel. "I didn't feel especially good today," Bookwalter said. "I felt substantially worse than yesterday. Towards the top of the climb, I was really picking guys off, but it was too little, too late." Bookwalter is now ninth, 2:24 behind Leipheimer, the new race leader.
