It was a start with a difference today down on beautiful Pismo Beach

The break quickly established itself after the start and in the move were Michael Schär (BMC), Danny van Poppel (Trek Factory Racing), Maarten Wynants (Belkin), Isaac Bolivar (UnitedHealthcare), Iker Camano (NetApp-Endura) and Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly p/b Maxxis).

Bradley Wiggins was happy again in yellow today and enjoying the sun – much better than last year’s Giro – or this year’s too!

He wasn’t going to let anyone dangerous get away on the climbs though and was quickly in the wheels…

SKY did a good job protecting Wiggo all day.

Cannondale were tired from doing all the work though, Phinney sensed this and after the last KOM he took off alone on the descent and quickly built a gap.

A great solo win for Taylor Phinney, well deserved after more than 20km of time trialling to hold off the charging pack.

Peter Sagan led in the pack just 12s behind Phinney and just ahead of Matthew Goss
