Tour de France star Bradley Wiggins and some of cycling's other big names have entered the Amgen Tour of California, race organizers announced Monday.

The field of 128 cyclists features 10 world champions and three of the world's top 10-ranked riders. The 720-mile race starts Sunday in Sacramento and ends eight days later in Thousand Oaks.

Joining Wiggins are Omega Pharma—Quick-Step's Mark Cavendish and Cannondale's Peter Sagan, who holds the record for the most California stage victories at 10.

Wiggins, the first cyclist to win an Olympic gold medal and the Tour de France in the same year (2012), is one of the race favorites while leading powerful Team Sky. Cavendish, who has 25 Tour de France stage victories, is expected to challenge Sagan in the sprint stages.

Community college

De Anza College is expected to announce the termination of its baseball program, according to a source close to the situation. The school already has decided not to hire a replacement for coach Scott Hertler, according to the source, who declined to be identified. Hertler resigned after a 3-31 season, the worst in school history.

The baseball team made headlines when several players were accused of gang raping an intoxicated 17-year-old girl at a 2007 party. No criminal charges were filed, and the players were not held liable in the civil case.

De Anza has fielded a baseball team since the school's inception in the 1967-68 school year, winning four conference championships. De Anza would join San Jose City College and Foothill as Santa Clara County community colleges that have dropped baseball.

Earthquakes

Earthquakes defender Victor Bernardez was called to Honduras' World Cup camp and is expected to be Los Catrachos' starting center back in Brazil.

Bernardez, 31, is available for the Quakes' two-game homestand starting Wednesday night against the Colorado Rapids at Buck Shaw Stadium. After that, he will be on national team duty probably until Honduras is eliminated from the World Cup.
