Taylor Phinney - Trek LivestrongTaylor Phinney made it two in a row for his Trek Livestrong team with a win in stage four of the Tour of the Gila.  The 19 year old out-kicked veteran sprinters Ivan Dominguez (Jamis-Sutter Home) and Charles Dionne (Fly V Australia) into second and third respectively in today's 69.6 kilometer Silver City Criterium.
