Take a weather check before placing a bet on Stage 3 of the 2009 Tour of California – it’s supposed to be another sprinters day in the 167.7km/104.2m stage from San José – Modesto. The big climb of the day, Sierra Road, comes after just 5 miles and you can be certain Quickstep and Columbia will be driving on the front to get Tom Boonen and Mark Cavendish back in contention well before the stage finish.
Mark Cavendish is favourite to take the stage with Tom Boonen and Oscar Freire also in the frame with the bookmakers.
