Photographer Casey B. Gibson was taking some shots of some Garmin-Slipstream riders in the peloton Tuesday when, as Casey tells it, “Levi bounced into the frame.”

The Amgen Tour of California race leader was riding behind a cluster of his teammates when he bumped into Lance Armstrong’s rear wheel and fell. Leipheimer bounced up, got a new bike and his teammates quickly helped pace him back to the peloton.
