Sagan Claims Stage 6 Time Trial And Yellow Leader Jersey

U.S. Women Dominate Invitational Time Trial with Two-Time National Champion Evelyn Stevens Taking Top Prize

May 15, 2015 - Stage 6

Note: Inclement weather has forced a location change for the Stage 6 Time Trial. The new course will take place at the Six Flags Magic Mountain parking lot.

The course for the Stage 6 Time Trial presented by Lexus is expected to be blistering fast. One by one, the world-class cyclists will leave the start house in the Six Flags Magic Mountain parking lot and race 6.6 miles out and back. The riders will have to navigate a series of quick turns as they head out on The Old Road, revisiting roads used in past editions of the race. With no real elevation gain to contend with, this will be a quick, exciting course with plenty of chances for a surprise victor.

The time trial winner will gain a significant amount of time to increase his gap over the competition, so expect riders to go all-out to improve their standings leading into a very tough race day that ends at the top of Mt. Baldy on Saturday. This includes the tight competition for the SRAM Best Young Rider Jersey, where the top-5 riders are separated by only :03.

“Everything about this course is primed to deliver fast, exciting racing,” said race director Jim Birrell. “This is the day when the riders will be trying their best to shore up their positions, and where every second matters. On this fairly short course, the result is really anyone’s guess because there is room for a specialty rider to take the cake from the big hitters in the general classification. Either way, we anticipate a very aggressive attempt for the win.”

The UCI sanctioned Amgen Tour of California Women’s Invitational Time Trial empowered with SRAM, will precede the men's Individual Time Trial (Stage 6). Twenty-three of the best women time trialists including Olympic Gold Medal winner Kristin Armstrong will compete in the invitational event on the same route. The women begin at 11:00 a.m., with the men following at 12:47 p.m. The 6.6-mile race is ranked 1.1 by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the highest race classification behind a World Cup.
