Trent Lowe, Tour de Georgia stage 5 There were no real surprises during today’s final circuit race in downtown Atlanta. A breakaway that included Tom Danielson held about a one-minute gap on the peloton for most of the race.

The break was overtaken in the final 10 km circuit with all the team’s lining up for their shot at a final stage win. Tyler Farrar managed to finish the stage 6th and maintain his second place position in the overall sprint competition.

Trent Lowe (right) easily maintained his position as the 2008 Tour de Georgia Best Young Rider overall. This marks the second time Trent has earned that honor, having won it in 2005 when he was only 20-years-old. Trent also finished on the podium as second in the overall classification, while Christian Vande Velde finished seventh.
