Amgen Tour of California - Race Overview

Adam Yates finished fifth overall at the Amgen Tour of California. The neo-pro finished 2'14 down on race winner Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) in large part due a pair of fourth places on the two summit finishes of the eight day race.

Esteban Chaves scored ORICA-GreenEDGE's first stage win at the American tour, soloing to victory on stage six. The Colombian climber was part of the early breakaway and attacked the escape group on the final climb. 

"We hadn’t won a stage of Tour of California before this year, and now we’ve ticked that box. Having Adam fifth overall was a very nice surprise. It was a very satisifying week for the team." - Sport Director Matt Wilson
