Tour of California Stage 6: Dave Z, Americans with strong TT showing

The writers over at US Pro Cycling News (myself included) will be doing daily recaps of both the Giro d’Italia and the Tour of California.

Today’s stage was an Individual Time Trial in Solvange. While Taylor Phinney put up an impressive 2nd place, the riders after him were consistently good, pushing Taylor down to 21st by the end of the stage. In the end, Garmin-Cervelo’s TT specialist, Dave Zabriskie killed the competition and won the stage.  Check out Fitzalan’s recap!
