Leipheimer on his Tour prep

Bike.com | Levi speaks about his vacation

Levi Leipheimer of Rabobank has got to be looking for redemption, after going down with a broken pelvis in the 2nd stage of last year's Tour. He took 8 days to go home to California in May, but now he's back in Spain prepping for the Dauphine Libere and the Tour de France:

The next race for me is the Dauphine and I'm looking forward to the time trial on Mt Ventoux. I have only raced up it once, in the Tour two years ago. I have always dreamed about doing climbs like Ventoux, it is a spectacular site. The climb itself can be torturous with the heat at the bottom where it is very sheltered and can be like an oven. Then the wind at the top can stop you dead in your tracks. I hope to do well there.

He's got a few kind words for Tom Boonen, who won Tuesday's stage of the Tour of Germany.
