ATOC Stage 2 - Peterson wins!!
Santa Cruz, CA - Aboard his Felt Z1, Garmin/Slipstream’s Tom Peterson won today's stage 2 of the Amgen Tour of CA, a wet and windy 116mi affair from Sausalito to Santa Cruz! Tom was a part of a long 10-man breakaway that split just after going over the Golden Gate bridge and through San Francisco as the race headed south. Things fractured within the group going up the Bonny Doon Road climb towards the finish and it was Tom and Levi Leipheimer who found themselves alone flying towards the finish. Tom took the sprint and gave the Garmin/Slipstream team it's first 2009 Amgen Tour of CA stage win!
