Tomorrow's Tour of California Stage 3

Al and I will be heading down to South San Jose to watch the individual time trial. There's a big initial climb, but the latter part of the course looks like a runway. My prediction, not having made any so far, is that Zabriskie will take the overall lead tomorrow. Zabriskie has been in pretty good form but has had trouble controlling his equipment: at the beginning of the prologue climb he had shifting problems that may have cost him the win; during the Sierra Road climb of stage 2 he pulled out of his pedal and couldn't catch back up with Leipheimer.
