Sutherland wins Boulder-based ride

The defending champion, however, takes the USA Pro Challenge lead
Boulder resident Rory Sutherland, a transplanted Australian riding for United Healthcare, climbed his way into the lead late in Stage 6 as the 103-mile effort from Golden headed to an exhausting uphill finish on Flagstaff Mountain overlooking Boulder. Sutherland finished in the lead, and Levi Leipheimer, the defending champion, regained his yellow jersey on the penultimate stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.
“I had a terrible night’s sleep,” Stage 6 winner and Boulder resident Rory Sutherland said. “But for me personally, to win in my hometown ... I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
After his heroic Stage 4 victory, the 40-year-old Jens Voigt turned the final corner into Boulder and across the Stage 6 finish line in third place. He took the King of the Mountains jersey from Tom Danielson, too.
Boulder fans watched one of their adopted sons, Aussie Rory Sutherland, win Stage 6 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge on Saturday. Several other Boulder riders cascaded across the finish line, too, including Fort Lewis College alumnus Tom Danielson, who finished 26th and is 15th overall.
