Stage 3 Auburn/Modesto

This was a tough day. It started out damp in Auburn and we experienced on and off drizzle mixed into a nasty unrelenting headwind the entire day. Although the stage was net downhill, we still climbed almost 4,000' across almost 70 miles of sharp rollers made worse by the headwind. Survival was the goal and there aren't many photos from today! Fortunately, the weather improved by the time the peloton swept into Modesto for several circuits and another sprint finish.
