Wednesday, May 16 will bring us Stage Four of the Tour of California, the longest leg of the entire race and one of the most difficult not only because of its length, but because of the lack of flat stretches of road as it twists and turns through mountains.
Stage Four takes the cyclists from Sonora to Clovis and stretches a full 130.2 miles by the time it ends.
The race has been dominated by 22 year old Slovakian Peter Sagan of the Liquigas-Cannondale team, who made race history when he won all three of the first day's legs to keep the yellow winner's jacket.
As usual, the race will have television coverage from NBC Sports Network all day. Viewers can stream the event as well as see highlights of the race so far -- here's a hint, Peter Sagan will likely be involved -- at the Tour of California "Race Video" page.
