Team Liquigas-Cannondale Off The Front: Tour Of California - The Team Behind The Team

Stage two of the Amgen Tour of California started from Nevada City instead of Squaw Valley, as the road conditions on the Donner Pass were once again too dangerous for the riders to cross. Team riders and staff made their way to the start of the shortened stage and toed the start line just after noon.

By the end of the stage, Liquigas-Cannondale's young superstar Peter Sagan just missed out on another Tour of California stage win, as he finished just behind Sky's Ben Swift after finishing four circuits around the California capital in Sacramento. Sagan benefitted not only from excellent work by his teammates, but also from the support of the team staff and the various roles they play. From the director sportifs to the masseurs and mechanics, the work that's done behind the scenes allows a champion like Peter to focus on the job at hand... winning bike races!
