Flying to the Line ToC19-37
I admitt that I don't watch every race around the world, so I don't think I have ever heard Cees Pol's (Sunweb) name before. But, I will know it now. Pol was able to better the famous Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) to the line, as well as the rest of the peloton. His outstretched arms reminded me of an airplane coming in for a landing, given his speed, it must have been a jet he was channeling. Sagan's Tour of California was a great success even if he didn't take a sprint jersey at the end of the Tour. Seconds later, Tadej Podgadar (UAE Team Emirates) crossed the line with arms aloft, celebrating his over all Tour of California victory. He is now the youngest winner of the Tour of California, and of any Pro Tour race ever. All at the tender young age of twenty. Chapeau!
