Tour of California: Stage 2 videos

Welcome to not-so-sunny California! Zipp has several teams in this Amgen Tour of California and we'll be following Garmin-Slipstream and Cervelo TestTeam during the week to get a backstage look at what factors go into the decisisions that riders, directors, and staff make about their equipment. Here we've got Garmin-Slipstream's Tyler Farrar talking about why he picked Zipp 404's for today's stage from Sausalito to Santa Cruz. It sounds like the 808 is his standard except under extremely windy conditions like we were expecting yesterday or days with climbs like we have today.

 

We've also got some footage with Alejandro Torralbo, the head mechanic for Cervelo TestTeam. They're all running 404's with 53x39 chainrings and 23t or 25t cassettes.
