Sagan Takes Familiar Spot At The Top Of The Podium At Amgen

The Amgen Tour of California men's race reached Morrow Bay today and a familiar name was at the front of the pack.

Slovakia's Peter Sagan won his 17th career Amgen stage race and will wear the green Sprint Leader jersey tomorrow. That is the most stages ever won by a rider on the tour.

But Rafal Majka still holds the yellow jersey as the overall leader.

The stage started in Pismo Beach and it wasn't long before there was a breakaway. Danny Pate (Rally), David Lozano (Novo Nordisk), Sean Bennett (Jelly Belly) and Ben Wolfe (Jelly Belly). 

Just like Sunday, Wolfe made a break from the breakaway. It took 15 minutes, but the peloton finally reeled him in. Wolfe was named Most Courageous Rider for the second time this tour.

Stage 4 will begin in Santa Barbara and will feature four climbs before the stage levels off and ends at Magic Mountain in Santa Clarita.

George Bennett (Team Lotto NL-Jumbo) remains in second overall. Ian Boswell (Team Sky) is third.

Daniel Alexander Jaramillo (United Healthcare) still leads the King of the Mountain category.

Lachlan Morton (Team Dimension Data) remains the Best Young Rider.

Team Sky leads the team classification by three minutes over BMC Racing.

On Sunday, 136 riders began the tour in Sacramento. One hundred thirty remain.
