Billed as the last chance for the general classification hopefuls to make their mark in the race, stage seven of the 2016 Amgen Tour of California provided plenty of action from the gun.

After starting in Santa Rosa, there were numerous escape groups and attacks as the riders navigated their way over six classified climbs.

American team BMC Racing were particularly active in attempting to unseat race leader Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-QuickStep) from the top of the general classification. With Rohan Dennis, Brent Bookwalter and Samuel Sanchez all in the top 10, the BMC squad tried whenever they could to put pressure on the Frenchman.

However, as the race hit the flat run-in to the finish in Santa Rosa, the race came back together with Alaphilippe safely keeping hold of the leader’s jersey.

Outside the fight for the overall honours, there was a battle for the stage win with world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) launching a lone attack that at one point looked like it would succeed. However, Sagan was caught to set up a bunch sprint – but he still managed to take second behind winner Alexander Kristoff (Katusha).

The 2016 Amgen Tour of California concludes on Sunday with a flat criterium stage around Sacramento. Watch out for Kristoff, Sagan and British sprinter Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data).
