Stage 7 - Santa Clarita to PasadenaStage Presented By
Stage 7 Results
Peter Sagan (CAN) wins stage 7 and Bradley Wiggins (SKY) holds the overall lead.
As they did in 2013, Santa Clarita will host two stages in 2014. Stage 7 will start at the familiar Town Center Mall. The route will follow a high desert path to a Sprint in Acton and into the Angeles National Forest. A slight twist from the familiar route through the National Forest will be the addition of Upper Big Tujunga. This not only adds a second KOM, it also adds several miles on the picturesque Angeles Crest Highway. Passing the Mount Wilson Observatory, the riders will quickly begin a long, steep, and very technical descent into the town of La Canada Flintridge. The riders will pass by the Rose Bowl and across the iconic Colorado Street Bridge. After some quick turns in Old Town Pasadena, the leaders will see City Hall, the finish line, and 3-laps to go. The three mile circuit will follow many well known streets in Pasadena, including the main route of the famous Rose Parade...Colorado Blvd.
