Big Time Breakaway
Will Routley’s determined and savvy effort on Stage 4 of the Amgen Tour of California gave his Optum p/b KBS what the team described as “its most prestigious stage win ever.” The breakaway on the scenic stage down the California coast outdid the sprinters to stay away, with the 31-year-old Canadian taking the victory. What’s more, Routley started Thursday’s Stage 5 with the lead the KOM and points jerseys. Routley and Optum p/b KBS ride SRAM RED 22. We also wanted to congratulate American Gregory Daniel of Bissell Development Team for his second place on Stage 4.
