The start time of each rider is given as well as their stats, it is perfectly compiled. You may follow right along and know who is out on the road and who finished in what time. If you do not have the app, please refer to this list by VeloNews.com USA Pro Challenge 2012 stage 7 start times.

Prize Money If you are interested ... this seems to be a popular post right now, folks are always curious about how much a Winner makes. A post I wrote last year about how much the stage and overall winners of the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge made (the numbers would be different for this year of course, but I haven't come across them yet. This should give you an idea of how it works) USA Pro Cycling Challenge Prize Money.
