Tour of California - Prologue

How early should I be there? Will the riders go off in 1 minute intervals?

Hopefully the rain stays away.

This site has all the timetables for the entire tour. The first rider leaves @1 so I would guess you need to be there at least an hour or so before to get a good spot in the crowd.

Not really, people hang around the expo area for quite a while getting schwag. There's tons of room all day everywhere except on the hill, but even there it's pretty thin for the first half hour or so. The start area with the giant TV is also crowded though.

1. DZ
2. BJ
3. LL

Thanks.

50 degrees sounds great right now. Currently 6 here, with a high of 17.

I'd think Levi will be a little more motivated for this particular race than Fabian, so I'll pick LL.
