The final day of racing at the 2017 Amgen Tour of California was nothing like a parade. George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) faced many attacks from his GC rivals, led by Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Andrew Talansky (Cannondale-Drapac). But the Kiwi climber made it to the finish in a reduced bunch to celebrate his biggest win to date. At the front, Rally Cycling managed to upset the sprinters once again with a second breakaway victory for Evan Huffman this week.


Evan Huffman (Rally Cycling): "I actually felt pretty bad this morning. But it was our plan to go for the breakaway and upset the sprinters. I’m quite in disbelief to be able to win two stages here, especially like that. I knew Lopez was gonna go for it so with two kilometres I decided to sit in his wheel. We started sprinting early, it was kind of a slow-motion sprint. And I was able to outmuscle him. "

George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo): «"This is really really special. Yesterday I was in disbelief and then it had time to sink in last night. It was pain, then I was happy, then pain again… Talansky must have attacked me ten times today. The guys made it a very hard race. It was relieving to cross the line. It gives me a lot of confidence but it’s not like I’m going for the Yellow Jersey at the Tour de France now. It’s a big step from here. I gotta keep my feet on the ground. "

Top Canadian on thhe stage was Rob Britton (Rally Cycling), finishing 5th at the same time at the winner.  Britton was also the top Canadian in GC finishing 26th at 17:07.
