It is a repeat of the 2011 stage that saw Team Radioshack shred the field and deliver Chris Horner to the yellow leader's jersey. This year Horner is over 2 minutes back and it's unlikely that he can put that much time into his GC rivals. Dave Zabriskie is in the lead this year, but he's not the strongest climber and he'll have a tremendous challenge in holding off the attacks. Santa Rosa's Team BMC is likely to be driving those attacks, as their man Tejay Van Garderen sits 34 seconds off the lead, in second place. BMC won't be the only team gunning for the win, also in the top ten is Rabobank's Robert Gesink and UnitedHealthcare's Rory Sutherland.

Stage eight is a run into Los Angeles that functions as race promotion and a treat for spectators. It's in the climb up Mt. Baldy in stage seven that the race will be decided.
