Tour of California, Stage 5: Launching

As they well knew, the sprint for the finish came down to a fight between Adam De Vos (Rally Cycling), Toms Skujins (Cannondale) and Xabier Zandio (Team Sky).  It was De Vos who opened up the sprint, a steep uphill affair, the was initially covered by Zandio with Skujins looking at the duo and checking to see if he had the legs to go with the attack.  There was one rider, Jasper Stuyens (Trek-Segafredo) trying desperately to bridge up to the three, but he was quickly running out of real estate.
