While the mountain bike-sters were busy in Colorado and Germany, a number of cyclocross road-sters were at the Amgen Tour of California last week. The Men’s race was a seven-day stage race from the 13th to the 19, and the Women competed in a three-day stage race from the 17th to the 19th.

Women’s Amgen Tour of California

The Women’s race was of particular interest for cyclocross fans after Katie Compton was named to the USA Cycling composite team alongside Megan Guanier and the Schneider sisters. Also expected to factor in the racing was defending U23 Cyclocross National Champion Emma White (Rally Cycling).

The Women’s race was a three-stage race with flat Stages 1 and 3 near Sacramento and a mountainous Stage 2 near Lake Tahoe.

White has already made a name for herself in the Women’s peloton with her sprinting power, and at the TOC, she showed why her name rings out. White took second in the Stage 1 sprint finish and followed it up with a third in Stage 3. For her efforts, she took the overall sprint points jersey. She does know a thing or two about wearing green after all…

Former cyclocrosser Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb) finished fifth in Stage 1 and fourth in Stage 2 to take sixth overall in the sprint points chase.

The winner of the Stage 1 sprint was Kendall Ryan (Team Tibco – Silicon Valley Bank). Some sleuthing showed Ryan entered some cyclocross races in her younger days when she learned how to ride Scary Fast.

Ryan finished fourth at the 2006 Cyclocross Nationals behind winner Rivera and runner-up Kaitie Keough. Team USA member and Schneider sister Samantha was also on the podium in the Junior 17-18 race.

The winner of the Women’s GC was Katharine Hall (United Healthcare). Hall won the Stage 2 mountain stage by 25 seconds to get her decisive GC gap. Overall, she won by 29 seconds ahead of Tayler Wiles (Trek – Drops).

Men’s Amgen Tour of California

Egan Bernal (Team Sky) won the Men’s race after his decisive win in the Stage 6 mountain stage. Bernal entered the stage trailing American Tejay van Garderen (BMC) by 23 seconds, but the young Columbian climber pulled away from the field to win by 1:28 and pick up even more time on Van Garderen. Bernal won the overall by 1:25 and the 21-year-old is now headed to the Tour of France.

Van Garderen won the Stage 4 time trial and capped the impressive race on home soil with a second-place overall finish. Like many of the successful women at the TOC, Van Garneren was also at the 2006 ’Cross Nationals as a U23 racer.
