Great news: Amgen Tour of California stage 5 winner Taylor Phinney (BMC Racing) is back on the bike after sustaining two fractures to his lower left leg and injuring his knee on Memorial Day last month at the USA Cycling Professional Road Race Championship. But it’s only a stationary bike for now.

It was great to hear Taylor Phinney’s enthusiastic voice this morning on a media conference call from the Park City Medical Center in Park City, Utah where the U.S. National Time Trial Champion continues his recovery from the broken left tibula that he sustained Memorial Day during the Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional National Road Race Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

It’s been difficult to get information about Taylor Phinney since he crashed on Monday (May 26) during the 2014 Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional National Championship Road Race in Chattanooga, Tennessee. His team, BMC Racing, is keeping silent, not issuing a single press release to update the media on the rider’s condition, treatment, prognosis and recovery since announcing the crash, which occurred two days after Phinney won his second national time trial championship.

It’s never been done before, but that doesn’t stop Taylor Phinney (BMC Racing) from openly stating his intentions to become the first American male to win the U.S. National Championship Time Trial and Road Race in the same year. Two years ago, the two-time Olympian placed 4th in both the London Olympics Time Trial and Road Race, and we saw last week at the Amgen Tour of California that the 2010 American Time Trial champ is on fantastic form heading into this weekend’s 2014 Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional  Road and Time Trial Championships in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Today we preview Saturday’s time trial.

I’m so in love with California and the romance grows sweeter each day. I wake up not knowing what unexpected adventure will take place in my itinerant travels with the 2014 Amgen Tour of California.

Stage 5 winner Taylor Phinney is no stranger to Santa Barbara.

“I’ve spent a couple weeks each winter in the Solvang-Los Olivos area, but it’s pretty boring up there so I come down to Santa Barbara a lot more if I feel like I need to have a social life. But it is good to be secluded up in the Santa Ynez Valley.”
