The 2013 Amgen Tour of California continued with Stage 3, which started in Palmdale and finished in Santa Clarita after going by the scenic Lake Hughes and Castaic Lake.

A break that contained Andy Schleck (RadioShack / Nissan) was off for most of the race, but was absorbed by the peloton to allow for a fast and crazy field sprint with Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) taking the win.

Enjoy the Photo Highlights of the day below.
