We don't stop hiking because we grow old, we grow old because we stop hiking. -- Finis Mitchell

Argyle Armada finishes with two 1st places

Today proved to be a good day for Team Garmin-Transitions. Two big races. Two big wins.

Let's start with the Giro d'Italia.

American Tyler Farrar sprinted to his second stage victory in this year's Giro d'Italia on Tuesday to thwart a rare Italian attempt for home glory.

Astana's Alexandre Vinokourov kept hold of the leader's pink jersey after the 10th stage, still one minute 12 seconds ahead of Australian world champion Cadel Evans on his BMC.

The win extends Farrar's lead in the red jersey points competition and is his second stage victory in this year's Giro. Not bad for a kid from Washington.

Now heading back to North America for the Tour of California.

Dave Zabriskie ended a long streak of almosts at the 2010 Tour of California with a breakthrough victory on Stage 3.

The Garmin-Transitions rider outsprinted his elite breakaway mates Levi Leipheimer (RadioShack) and Michael Rogers (HTC-Columbia) to take not only the stage win, but the leader's gold jersey as well.

That's right, Zabriskie is now the overall leader.

What a great day for Garmin-Transitions. Go Argyle!
