Ben Swift wins and takes lead, Tour of California 2011, stage two

Britain's Ben Swift (Sky) won stage two of the Tour of California in Sacramento to become the first rider to don the leader's jersey in the weather-affected 2011 race.

Swift opened up his sprint early and kept his momentum after a near-perfect lead-out from his Sky team-mates. Slovakian Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) nipped past Australian Matt Goss (HTC-Highroad) on the line to take second place.
