According to :

"Mark Cavendish of HTC-Columbia will be wearing the yellow leader's jersey during the grueling trek into the hills via Highway 128, dubbed "Cardiac Hill," before the racers head through Napa County and finally ending up in Santa Rosa.

Levi Leipheimer, the winner of the previous three Tour of California races and two stages in the Tour de France, is a resident of Santa Rosa and is expected to challenge the leaders when the race reaches his hometown."

Lance Armstrong, who is supporting his teammate Levi Leipheimer, finished 66th on the day and twitted after the race, "I was blown away by the amount of spectators along the route - impressive! Congrats to Cav."
