Fresno, CA- Feb 15, '06

The stage that we pre-rode today is going to perhaps be the hardest stage of the race. There seem to be dozens of category level climbs that have the potential to shatter the field as it ascends each. Most of the scenery is that that of the wine country- rolling green hills with patches of trees and foliage in the valleys. The roads are great; they wind amongst hills and valleys, unbeatable for bikes. The weather once more turned out to be quite ideal, hovering at around 60 degrees outside of the shade.
The hotel has increased in quality once more, today is the Hampton Inn.
Tomorrow we preview the time trial course which is located in San Jose.
