• Team Sky’s Wiggins Triumphs at AMGEN Tour of California; Cavendish Wins Two Stages

    Cycling: Tour of California 2014/ Stage 5

    Posted 2 months ago by John Ohail

    Sir Bradley Wiggins’ 2014 AMGEN Tour of California campaign was extremely reminiscent of his 2012 Tour de France victory. Back in winning form, the Tour de France and Olympic Champion took to the California landscape with one thing on his mind: adding to his already impressive resume with an AMGEN Tour of California title, one of the few cycling feats he had not yet achieved. From his domination of the individual time trial during stage two, to the first climbing stage on the third day of racing, Wiggins and his Team Sky teammates put him into position to bring home California’s version of the yellow jersey. He took the top prize by an overall margin of 30 seconds over Garmin-Sharp’s Rohan Dennis.

    In a wild day of cycling in London, Kazakhstan’s Alexandr Vinokurov took the top spot on the men’s road cycling podium, followed closely behind by Columbia’s Rigoberto Uran. Vinokurov bettered his 3rd place finish in 2000 with his top performance today in London. While he was planning retirement following the 2012 season already, Vinokurov was more than happy to win the biggest race of his career during its final moments. Team Great Britain, who was considered a heavy favorite in the race, controlled the front of the peloton most of the day, but didn’t have enough in the end to top Vinokurov and the rest of the riders in front of them. The United States’ Taylor Phinney, finished just outside of podium position in fourth place.
