WWW.VELONEWS.COM is reporting that Toyota-United speedster Juan Jose Haedo earned a measure of redemption, taking a bunch-sprint win on the final day of the 2006 Ford Tour de Georgia.

The Argentine finished just ahead of Canadian Gord Fraser (Health Net-Maxxis) and CSC's Aurelien Clerc at the finish of the 118.2-mile, stage from Cumming to Alpharetta, Sunday.

Meanwhile, American Floyd Landis finished safely in the bunch, wrapping up his third major stage race win of 2006. Already this spring the Phonak rider has taken victories in the Tour of California and Paris-Nice.

Four seconds behind Landis in the overall standings was 2005 Tour de Georgia champion Tom Danielson (Discovery Channel) with his teammate Yaroslav Popovych in third.



American Fred Rodriguez (Davitamon-Lotto) won the points jersey, with the KOM crown going to Jason McCartney (Discovery Channel). McCartney's Discovery Channel teammate Janez Brajkovic won the Best Young Rider competition.

Landis and his Phonak Team successful won the race and Discovery Channel pushed them hard. Im wondering if this is a prelude to the TOUR in July?
