Tour of California, Stage 3: Slovakian Peter Sagan Takes Lead Into Tuesday

Stage 3 of the eight-stage Tour of California will take place Tuesday.

Stage 3 is 115.3 miles and will take riders from San Jose to Livermore.

The leader heading into Tuesday's action is Peter Sagan, 22, who according to this press release is a "young Slovakian cycling sensation."

The release goes on to say,

"I don't know, maybe it takes a natural disaster," said Sagan, when asked what it would take to stop his winning ways, noting he suffered an untimely punctured tire three miles from the finish yesterday and still won Stage 1. "I am feeling good. I will see tomorrow (to make it three straight wins)," he continued.

Here is the complete leaderboard.

Live TV coverage begins at 4 p.m. Central on NBC Sports Network. Viewers can stream the event -- or check out loads of highlights and videos -- at the Tour of California "Race Video" page.
