WPC: Victory

Riding to Win


In the middle of a rainy Stage 2 during the 2010 Amgen Tour of California, team HTC-Columbia’s sprinter Mark Cavendish (center) wears the race leader’s coveted Golden Jersey.  Mark Cavendish, sometimes called the Manx Missile, has been one of the best sprinters in pro cycling, including winning the Green Jersey in the 2009 Tour de France.

His teammate Michael Rogers  of Australia would go on to win overall victory in the 2010 Tour of California — which ended with Stage 9 in Thousand Oaks, California — after riding a total of 810 miles in 33 hours and 8 minutes.
