Amgen Tour of California - Stage 7

Cycling

ByTheMinCycle

Hello hello! A rather frantic rush to get onto the final 29km of stage 7 of the Amgen Tour of California! @TimBonvilleGinn here as we have 6 riders up the road, this includes Lachlan Morton! But, the peloton is 55" off, very very small peloton!

About 20 riders in the peloton! Very surprised to see such a small group but it is a very difficult day! Morton really pushing on but it looks like Bora are eager to bring this back!

Oooh Peter Sagan is there!! On Majka's wheel. Right that changes everything then, Bennett still has 3 teammates with him, Majka only has Sagan and one other, the other is hammering on the pace!

I believe that on Sagan's wheel, I see Matteo Trentin.... It is! Ah it isn't so clean cut for Sagan then

Trek are hammering it along as well! Oooh is that Degenkolb? Could he get a win? Oh hang on! Sagan is pushing on! The descent is perfect for him, much like any descent

Peter Sagan just showing his incredible ability on this descent! 12 miles, 19km to go! 50" between the lead group and the peloton

Well, Team Rally have 3 riders in the break! The 2 at the front are working for Britton who is riding in the light blue most courageous rider jersey! 2nd day in a row

Oh no the break are all working equally! Not sure who will get this, David Lopez is in there for Sky by the way

With 12km to go, Cannondale Drapac come to the front of the peloton with Lotto NL Jumbo and Bora Hangrohe

Hmm Lopez isn't working in the break away! Oh by the way, the final KM is very technical! 3, yes 3, right angle turns! First left, then right, another right soon after then it's the straight to finish with about 300m to go
