Some of Los Angeles' "most recognizable landmarks, including Walt Disney Concert Hall, the University of Southern California, the LA Coliseum and STAPLES Center," were what participants in the 2010 Amgen Tour of California whizzed past on the seventh day of the race, chronicles RoadCycling.

Tony Martin (GBR) of Team HTC-Columbia emerged victorious with a time of 41 minutes and 41 seconds. Finishing in second place, three-time individual time trial world champion Michael Rogers (AUS) also of Team HTC-Columbia, will retain the Amgen Leader Jersey heading into the final stage of the race.

Said winner Martin of his L.A. experience: "I'd never been to Los Angeles before, so to race here in such a big city was really spectacular."
