Fernando Gaviria took his second stage win and Kendall Ryan took her first ever leader’s jersey in Elk Grove, California on Thursday. Caley Fretz is on the ground at the race and chats with Ian Boswell about the speed of the peloton (he says it’s faster) and Toms Skujins about his breakaway confidence and his victory solute. Plus he checks out a strider race for 3-year-olds.
Then, Neal Rogers joins to dig into the GC picture, and how things might play out on the Tahoe stage. The stage will decide the overall for both the men’s and women’s race.
