A Job to Be Done ToC19-13
The team of EF Education First had a job to do today, and the peloton was going to make sure they did it. Every time the camera showed the peloton, it was the boys in pink riding tempo for their man in the Yellow Jersey, TeJay van Garderen. Leading the group on the way up Mount Hamilton was Alex Howes, followed in turn by Lachlan Morton, Segio Higuita, Tejay himself, and Lawson Craddock. Taylor Phinney had already done his time on the front and had dropped off to make his way to Morgan Hill as best he could. I'm not sure where Rigoberto Uran was at this point. With those up the road way down on the general classification, there was no reason to chase the escapees.
