Tour of California 2009: Marin County - Palo Alto?

I was worried that with difficult fund raising in 2008 that Palo Alto was hosting its first and last Tour of California stage, but there's good new lurking in the Palo Alto Weekly:

Palo Alto is vying to host a finish for a day-long stage of the 2009 race that would start north of San Francisco, drop down out of the Santa Cruz mountains and finish in downtown.

The Santa Cruz mountains were featured so well in the Bettini/Boonen Specialized commercials -- it's about time they get some ToC peloton action.

That would be interesting.

Wicked thought: route this stage through Woodside.


That would be something! Real excitement would include a descent of Page Mill Road. But I'd even settle to see these guys fly down Hwys 84 or 9. Good luck closing Sand Hill Rd. for the trip into town, though. Alpine might be a better bet.
