Mark Cavendish’s third victory of the season came on Sunday when the Amgen Tour of California began with a 170-kilometer stage from Nevada City to Sacramento. In the tough duel with Juan José Haedo (Team Saxo Bank), he won by a narrow margin.
HTC-Columbia took command in the final looking to Sacramento streets when they pulled up the Sprint for Mark Cavendish, just as they had done countless times before. Mark Renshaw delivered the best starting position for Mark Cavendish when he as last man standing in the train turned aside.
“I’m really happy. I thought it would be a klungspurt and the team controlled the perfect.When you have eight guys who gives 100 percent and all trust each other it works just a guy crossed the finish line with his hands in the air but it was a team effort, says Mark Cavendish.
– The beginning of the stage was pretty hard when the attacks came, but after it controlled a couple of law distance. Some teams helped us on the road and then we took over. We have the best team in the world for Sprint tasks and we know that we should not take over too early or too late, “continues Mark.
The Amgen Tour of California is an important contest for HTC-Columbia when they have American sponsors. The victory in Sacramento will make the pressure on the team now decreased a bit.
“Hopefully we can win a few more sprints but we would like to be included in the abstract. Michael Rogers is in the form of his life, reveals spurtaren.
