May 12/14 20:22 pm - Tour of California: Stage 2 report and results


Posted by Editoress on 05/12/14
 

A new race leader for the men emerged following Stage 2, with Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins (GBR) crushing the individual time trial event to capture the stage win with a margin of 44 seconds, as well as the Amgen Race Leader Jersey.

Team Garmin-Sharp's Rohan Dennis (AUS), who finished third in last year's Amgen Tour of California time trial, posted the time to beat early on, which held until Wiggins took the platform. The 2012 Tour de France champion, who won Olympic gold in the time trial the same year, turned in a spectacularly fast performance and became the only rider of the day to complete the course in less than 24 minutes for a final time of 23:18. Wiggins averaged a speed of 32 mph, a full mile per hour faster than the second-place Australian rider, who finished the day 44 seconds behind Wiggins.

"You have a plan in your head as to how you imagine you're going to come out at the end of today, and so far it's probably a bit better than I imagined," said Wiggins. "I think it's going to be a tough week now. I think tomorrow [Tuesday] the race can really start. As big as the gaps may be now, everyone is in with a chance."

Wiggins is the second British rider to wear yellow this year, with the coveted leader jersey changing hands from Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team's Mark Cavendish, who dropped to 18th place overall but retained the Visit California Sprint Leader Jersey. BMC Racing Team's Taylor Phinney (USA), an early favorite for the stage and tenth overall after Stage 1, settled for a strong third place finish (+:52).

"I thought it would be a bit closer but when [Wiggins is] flying, he's really flying, and he showed that today; kind of in a class of his own. I think I could have had a better result but I gave it everything I had, and that's really what it's all about, so I guess I have to be satisfied," said Phinney.

Other jerseys awarded included the Crunchies Best Young Rider Jersey to Team Giant-Shimano's Lawson Craddock (Austin, Texas), while the Amgen Breakaway from Cancer Most Courageous Rider Jersey remains with Team Novo Nordisk's Charles Planet (FRA) and the Michelob Ultra King of the Mountain Jersey remains with Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies' Will Routley (CAN).
