The opening stage of the Tour of California saw Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep-Floors) take the line honours in Long Beach. The 134.5km course consisted of 12 laps in a race featuring some of the world’s best sprinters and after a few overcast days the sun came out for perfect conditions in the Golden State. A two-man breakaway led for the majority of the race but were controlled by the peloton with the gap never reaching more than 2’30”. Our team sat comfortably in the bunch with Mark Renshaw looking at positioning himself to give Mark Cavendish an opportunity in the expected sprint finish. Cavendish, who recently.
