Jaramillo close to sealing KOM jersey at Amgen Tour of California
BIG BEAR, Calif. – Another day safely in the books for UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling, that saw King of the Mountains jersey wearer Daniel Jaramillo finish the Big Bear Individual Time Trial ready for the last stage from Mountain High to Pasadena.
“We’re ready to fight to keep the KOM jersey,” team director Sebastian Alexandre said. “The time trial is over and all our guys are committed to protect Daniel’s lead in that classification going into tomorrow.”
Jon Dibben won the time trial, which featured 24 kilometers of a flat but technical course around Big Bear Lake. The Sky rider outpaced Brent Bookwalter (BMC) by seven seconds and Cannondale-Drapac’s Andrew Talansky by 16 seconds.
