The Amgen Tour of California visited the home campus of its name sponsor Saturday as Phonak’s Floyd Landis edged yet another day closer to locking up the overall title.
While the peloton made it to Amgen world headquarters for a visit, it was another sponsor of cycling that was able to celebrate a win, as T-Mobile’s Olaf Pollack sped across the line ahead of Italian Riccardo Ricco (Saunier Duval-Prodir) and American Fred Rodriguez (Davitamon-Lotto) astride his Giant road bike… just a few kilometers from that company’s corporate HQ.
Sponsorship hopes aside, our man Casey Gibson was there to document all of the action, be it properly branded or not.
