Along the Coast ToC19-19
As per race tradition, today featured yet another break away, this one was not given the king of gap that happened yesterday. Today's escapees where all contiental teams and included both the champion of Israel and the United States. It is very unlikely the sprinters and their teams where going to let these guys, Joonas Henttala (Novo Nordisk), Michael Hernandez (USA Cycling), Roy Goldstein (Israel Cycling), along with the two Hagen Berman Axeon teammates, Jonny Brown and Ian Garrison, steal their chance at a stage victory. It must have been a treat to ride along the Pacific Coast Highway with the dramatic rocky coast for scenery dispite the unrelenting head win for 130 miles.
