Too bad Versus had to switch to a pre-game hockey show….
just 2K before the finish….
Saxo Bank’s J.J. Haedo challenged him in the final few meters, but Mark Cavendish closed the deal for HTC-Columbia on the first stage of the 2010 Amgen Tour of California.
After a massive show of power by HTC-Columbia, which rode the front almost from the day’s start, Cav’ jumped from behind his trusty leadout man Mark Renshaw and immediately opened a huge gap over everyone but Haedo, who clung to his wheel. In the last 50 meters, Haedo began moving up around Cav, but the line was coming up quicker.
Cavendish wasn’t fazed…..
