AMGEN Tour of California #ATOC: Stage 04 – Sonora

Yesterday was a hot one. As we’re moving south with the AMGEN Tour of California the temperatures are rising. We spent the night in Sonora and woke up to the start of the race. After the group took off, we loaded the sprinter van up and headed to the finish. Driving through the California farmland was beautiful.

At the finish, we were greeted with the quaint town of Clovis for the finish. As expected, Peter Sagan seized another victory…

    I didn’t know you came to the finish in Clovis Prolly. It would have been nice to talk bikes with you! The stage 4 finish was epic. Video cannot capture how fast all those riders were going in real life. Peter Sagan is killing it.
