Amgen Tour of California. Stage 6. Davide Ballerini secures KOM jersey, while Hugo Houle made it into the breakaway
With still one stage to go, Davide Ballerini secured the KOM jersey of the 2019 Amgen Tour of California today. Hugo Houle was part of the day’s breakaway and collected the KOM points, so his teammate knew he would be the King of the Mountains. The break with Houle didn’t make it to the finish line in today’s Queen Stage, as they got caught on the final climb with the summit finish on Mt. Baldy. Tadej Pogacar won the stage and is the new overall leader. Jonas Gregaard dropped out of the top 10 overall and is now eighteenth.
