Amgen Tour of California
Stage 7: Santa Clarita - Pasadena - Stage Details

Adam Yates remains in fifth overall at the Amgen Tour of California following the penultimate day of racing. Jens Keukeleire was the best-placed rider for ORICA-GreenEDGE, seventh in the stage seven sprint in Pasadena. Peter Sagan (Cannondale) sprinted to victory, beating Thor Hushovd (BMC) and Danny van Poppel (Trek) to the line. 

“Jens got his result on his own. We also had Adam and Esteban [Chaves] up there. Aside from being a little climber type that isn’t really suited to the lead-out, Esteban is still regaining his confidence in the bunch. Yatesy needed to look out for himself and his position on the general classification, so Jens had to do the sprint alone.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
