It’s been an exciting week in California for both the men and women’s teams. The women’s race came down to a nail-biting one-second difference between first and second place on the general classification, with Katie Hall narrowly missing out on the win. After four stages, and two days of defending the leader’s jersey the team took home Team GC honors, and Katie Hall took home the Queen of the Mountains jersey.
The men have been riding strong in California this week too, with Daniel Jaramillo currently holding the King of the Mountains jersey. Plus Travis McCabe has finished top-10 against the strongest sprinters in the world with on both stages one and three.
