    The 2013 Giro d’italia is in the books and to say it was an epic race is an understatement. Some of the best riders in the world battled some less than favorable conditions throughout the 21 stages of the race, including strong winds, blistering rain and even downpours of snow on multiple occasions.

    Bozeman, Montana native and Boulder, Colorado resident, Tejay van Garderen has a lot of pride. Pride in his team (BMC Racing), pride in himself (a 24-year-old American cycling phenom) and pride in his sport of road cycling as a whole. So it couldn’t be more fitting that the highly anticipated first major stage race win would come from the young American on his home soil. Van Garderen secured his maiden victory at the 2013 Amgen Tour of California this past week, touring the The Golden State from south to north in a winning time of 29 hours 43 minutes. The 8-stage race took riders from the blistering conditions in Escondido and Palm Springs all the way up to the final stage from San Francisco to Santa Rosa, California.
