    Bozeman, Montana native and Boulder, Colorado resident, Tejay van Garderen has a lot of pride.

So it couldn’t be more fitting that the highly anticipated first major stage race win would come from the young American on his home soil. Van Garderen secured his maiden victory at the 2013 Amgen Tour of California this past week, touring the The Golden State from south to north in a winning time of 29 hours 43 minutes. The 8-stage race took riders from the blistering conditions in Escondido and Palm Springs all the way up to the final stage from San Francisco to Santa Rosa, California.

Already one of the greatest sprinters to ever live, Cavendish won Stage 12 of the 2013 Giro d’italia, his third of the race and his astonishing 100th of his career. Crediting his team with the reason he secured the victory today, Cavendish completed the rainy 134km stage from Longarone to Treviso in a time of 3:01:47 to collect his milestone victory.
