PIC © GARY BOULANGER Argentinean sprinter and Tour of California multiple stage winner JJ Haedo (Team CSC) outsprinted American Fred Rodriguez (Predictor-Lotto) and Sergey Lagutin (Navigators Insurance) to claim the sole Team CSC victory in the final stage of the 2007 Tour de Georgia. The 23-year-old Slovenian Janez Brajkovic (Discovery Channel) took home the overall title, giving the Discovery Channel three Tour de Georgia titles (following Lance Armstrong in 2004 and Tom Danielson in 2005). Haedo's American teammate Christian Vande Velde wasn't able to turn the tables on overall race leader Janez Brajkovic (Discovery Channel) during Sunday's 107km circuit race through the mean streets of Atlanta. It was a fine showing for American riders throughout the week, with Scott Nydam (Team BMC) finishing sixth overall at 5:35 beind Brajkovic. The next three placings were earned by Jeff Louder (Health Net Maxxis), Timothy Johnson (Health Net Maxxis), and Lucas Euser (Slipstream-Chipotle). The Tour also marked the healthy return of Discovery Channel's George Hincapie following his Tour of California crash.
