What an extraordinary week it was, the tenth edition of the Amgen Tour of California. Like the inaugural Amgen Tour of California Women’s Race empowered by SRAM won by pint-sized Trixi Worrack (Velocio-SRAM), the yellow jersey changed hands on the final day with the aid of time bonuses in a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat sprint showdown that crowned Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) the new King of California by a scant three-second margin over 22-year-old French phenom Julian Alaphilippe (Ettix-Quick-Step).

Peter Sagan (Cannondale) may be wearing green as the Visit California Sprint Points leader, but the four-time Amgen Tour of California Sprint Points winner has yet to win a stage of the 2014 edition of America’s Greatest Race. The winner of ten stages in previous visits to California, Sagan will not be happy if he doesn’t win at least one stage and Saturday’s 88.7 mile Stage 7 that culminates with a few circuits in Pasadena following the same route as the iconic Rose Parade is probably his best shot of the two remaining stages.
