Santa Cruz, California

Steve Morabito of the BMC Racing Team continued his climb up the general classification at the Amgen Tour of California with a 12th-place finish Tuesday on Stage 3 that moved him from 25th to 19th overall.

Morabito 27 Seconds Off The Lead

The 182-kilometer race shattered on the ascent of Bonny Doon, the last of four climbs. "At the bottom, (Simon) Zahner and (Alexander) Kristoff put me in good position," Morabito said. "Radio Shack did a hard tempo and the bunch exploded." Morabito finished in the lead group, 17 seconds after a three-up sprint was won by new race leader David Zabriskie (Garmin-Transitions). BMC Racing Team U.S. national champion George Hincapie finished 32nd, 1:41 back.
