2015 Amgen Tour of California (HC)

10th edition: May 10 - May 17, 2015

Stage 7: May 16, 2015

Back to 2015 Tour of California |

Saturday, May 16: Stage 7, Ontario - Mt. Baldy, 128.7 km

Stage 7 map and profile |

The Race: Well, this just got really interesting...

Today's stage finished with a long hill-climb to the summit of Mount Baldy. The day's early break was caught near the beginning of the Mount Baldy ascent (6.92 km, 9% average gradient) . Once the road started to point to the sky Julian Alaphilippe and Sergio Henao were gone, never to be seen again.

With a few kilometers left to the top, young Alaphilippe went clear. He finished the stage alone, getting his first race win of the year.

Further back down the hill, race leader Peter Sagan just ground out a sustainable pace and slowly closed up to the two escapees.

He couldn't make the catch, finishing 47 seconds after Alaphilippe crossed the line. But Alaphilippe started the day just 45 seconds down. The young Frenchman has become the race leader by a slender two seconds.

Julian Alaphilippe wins stage 7

Julian Alaphilippe wins Tour of California stage 7.

Tomorrow will be interesting. Will Sagan be able to gain back those two seconds? We know he'll try.
