Tour of California, Stage 8: Phinney Top 10 Again

22. maggio 2011

Thousand Oaks, California

Taylor Phinney registered his fourth top 10 finish at the Amgen Tour of California Sunday with sixth place on Sunday's final stage.

Morabito Ninth Overall

Phinney, who finished eighth on Stages 2, 3 and 5, said he definitely felt the effects of six days of hard racing when he was sprinting. "I was up there following (Peter) Sagan, (Ben) Swift) and (Matthew) Goss – the guys I knew would be up there," Phinney said. "Unfortunately, with about 500 meters to go, I tried to make  a surge to get around some guys and by the time I got to the sprint, I was a bit gassed." Goss (HTC-Highroad) took the win while Chris Horner (Team Radioshack) won the overall. Steve Morabito finished ninth, best of four BMC Racing Team riders in the top 25. The BMC Racing Team was third on the team classification behind Team Garmin-Cervélo and Radioshack.
