Catalana: Leipheimer wins Stage 4, Rodriguez takes lead
American Levi Leipheimer of Rabobank got his first win in more than two years today in the Setmana Catalana, winning the mountaintop finish atop Port de Comte. Leipheimer and Joaquin Rodriguez of Saunier Duval caught Roberto Heras of Liberty Seguros just 150 meters from the finish.
Leipheimer took the stage win, but the higher-placed Rodriguez took over the race lead with only Friday's stage left to race. There are at least 10 riders within 4 seconds of the lead. Leipheimer is 14th, 37 seconds back. Heras, the former US Postal rider, sits 38th, 18:36 back, and Jan Ullrich, riding into shape, is 90th, 55:54 back.
