David Zabriskie (USA), General Classification Leader; First Place, Stage 3

On winning the Amgen Leader Jersey:
"I've been a runner up, but I've never won a stage here. I've never touched the Amgen Leader Jersey since the Amgen Tour of California started. Just to touch this jersey is quite an honor."

"The Amgen Tour of California is my favorite race on the calendar and I'm very excited to win this jersey."
