Tour of California Stage 1
It was a who’s who of big name sprinters. Fernando Gaviria (COL) was unbeatable as the blue train of Quick-Step Floors racked up yet another victory. Cavendish? Kittel?
Tour of California Stage 2
Egan Bernal (COL) was riding first class aboard the royal Sky chariot. His teammate Tao Geoghegan Hart (GBR) threw down a suffocating pace. I mean the field was destroyed. One by one GC favorites fell back to earth. It was hard to believe Bernal could even attack and hold it to the line after the pace setting. Unbelievable performance by both. Notable: Tejay van Garderen (USA) struggled conceding 50 seconds. But the ITT still looms.
Giro d’Italia Stage 6
Esteban Chaves (COL) goes in the day long break on the final climb to Mt. ETNA he goes clear from the break. The other GC favorites are closing in. Teammate Simon Yates (GBR) jumps clear and makes contact with Chaves. Yates gifts the stage to Chaves and Yates takes the pink jersey. You cannot draw this up any better. It was like the peloton was helpless and Yates and Chaves on another level. Now Orica-Scott is setting pretty with two riders on the podium. Notable: Chris Froome (GBR) distanced again.
Giro d’Italia Stage 9
Simon Yates (GBR) wins in pink. Another amazing stage. But he will need minutes on Tom Dumoulin (NED) before the Stage 16 ITT. As of now he sits with a 38 second buffer. Shaping up to be a fascinating Giro. Notable: Chris Froome (GBR) loses a minute.
