The mirrors that are being selected for you must not be fully up to
date.  I don't know why that would be the case, but from a
not-yet-updated (actually still 5.2) system I get:

Loading "priorities" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * rpmforge: ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de
 * base: mirror.facebook.net
 * updates: mirror.facebook.net
 * addons: mirror.facebook.net
 * extras: centos-distro.cavecreek.net
444 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
