May 15/17 20:10 pm - Tour of California: Stage 2


Posted by Editoress on 05/15/17
 

Bora-Hansgrohe's Rafal Majka, the Tour de France's defending King of the Mountain, claimed his first victory since becoming Poland's National Road Race Champion on today's Amgen Tour of California Stage 2. A difficult day of climbing from Modesto to San Jose shattered the leader board with Amgen Race Leader Jersey wearer Marcel Kittel and several other sprinters dropped from the peloton as they tackled the steep terrain. When the final results were tabulated, ten riders were with one minute off the overall race lead.
 
"I remember riding here in 2011, which was my first year as a pro, and now I'm so happy to win this stage, not only for me but also my teammates. We had a really nice group at the front with strong riders....We went fast to the end," said Majka, who won bronze in the 2016 Olympic Games Road Race.
 
With about five miles and a final climb to go, a lead group containing Majka, Team LottoNL-Jumbo's George Bennett, Team Sky's Ian Boswell and Team Dimension Data's Lachlan Morton moved forward with two chase groups not far behind. The nearest of those, about 50 seconds back, included Bennett's teammate and 2012 Amgen Tour of California champion Robert Gesink.

Adam de Vos (Rally Cycling) was top Canadian finishing 22nd at 3:37 back. De Vos is top Canadin in GC as well in 22nd at
3:48 back.
