From his domination of the individual time trial during stage two, to the first climbing stage on the third day of racing, Wiggins and his Team Sky teammates put him into position to bring home California’s version of the yellow jersey. He took the top prize by an overall margin of 30 seconds over Garmin-Sharp’s Rohan Dennis.
