    Posted 4 months ago by John Ohail

    Sir Bradley Wiggins’ 2014 AMGEN Tour of California campaign was extremely reminiscent of his 2012 Tour de France victory. Back in winning form, the Tour de France and Olympic Champion took to the California landscape with one thing on his mind: adding to his already impressive resume with an AMGEN Tour of California title, one of the few cycling feats he had not yet achieved. 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.
