Tour of Missouri: Zabriskie reigns supreme

Nestled safely in the peloton, American David Zabriskie (Garmin-Slipstream) cruised to a 30-second victory in the 2009 Tour of Missouri today in Kansas City.

Zabriskie used his dominant performance in the Stage 5 time trial in Sedalia to finish ahead of Gustav Larrsen (Saxo Bank) and Marco Pinotti (Columbia-HTC). Pinotti used time bonuses to slip ahead of Tom Zirbel (Bissel) for the third podium spot.

Big crowds in the Kansas City Power & Light District cheered Canadian Martin Gilbert (Planet Energy) as he took the Stage 7 Kansas City circuit race victory. Andrew Pinfold (OUCH) was second. Although Thor Hushovd (Cervelo) had to settle for third in the stage, he won the sprinter's competition.

Moises Aldape (Team Type I) captured the King of the Mountains, while Dario Cataldo (QuickStep) was the best young rider. Saxo Bank won the team competition.

In case you were actually bicycling -- as I was today on the Belleville Area Bicycling and Eating Society's Villa Marie Winery Ride in Maryville, Ill. -- instead of watching cycling, you can watch video at Universal Sports.
