Across the Valley Floor TOC6
True to form, Stage 2 of the Tour of California had its small break away. At least it was the small one that was allowed to build up a seven minute lead on the peloton. Earlier, 22 riders had escaped the main body of racers, and that was not allowed to amass any time on the peloton at all. The foursome included Ben King (Cannondale), who hails from my hometown of Richmond, Virginia, along with Sindre Skjoestad Lunke (Giant-Alpecin), William Barta (Axeon Hagens Berman) and Evan Huffman (Rally Cycling).
