A Very Colombian Tour of California

Egan Bernal, champion of the Tour of California.
The annual Amgen Tour of California is a seven-stage race across the Golden State which serves as a warm-up for the Tour de France.

Even tho it's not particularly mountainous, Colombian riders dominated this year's edition:

- Egan Bernal, a native of Zipaquira, won the overall race, while fellow Colombian Daniel Martinez finished third.

- Fernando Gaviria, who is from La Ceja, Antioquia, took the final stage by millimeters in a sprint, his third stage victory in the race.

- Overall, Colombian riders won five of the seven stages.

If only they can pull off something similar in the Tour de France or another of the really big tours.
