After returning from Australia and racing in the Tour Down Under with his Predictor-Lotto Team, Freddie Rodriguez returned to the Bay Area for a rest week as well as to do some reconnaissance of the Tour of California (ToCA), February 18-25.

After two close calls in two days, sprinter Fred Rodriguez nailed down the Tour de Georgia's third stage with a well-timed sprint after a mountainous 119 mile race from Dalton, GA to the finish in Dahlonega.
