Henderson wins stage, takes overall lead

Greg Henderson of New Zealand powered to a surprising stage win and took the overall race lead at the Tour of California from British teammate Ben Swift in the wind-filled and crash-marred third stage Tuesday.
Team Sky rider Henderson, usually the main lead-out rider for Swift, went to the front with about 500 meters left, and took the 121.9-mile (196.2-kilometer) Auburn to Modesto road race in 5 hours, 14 minutes and 29 seconds.
The riders, pedaling in strong headwinds and periodic rain, finished the stage about an hour later than expected.
Argentina's Juan Jose Haedo of Saxo-Bank of Argentina was second in the stage, with the Garmin-Cervelo team's reigning world titleholder Thor Hushovd of Norway third _ both in the same time.
