May 11, 2015 – Stage one of the 2015 Tour of California was the typical opener, a full speed finish for the fastest men in the world. Although the stage did feature some dirt roads, most of it was good pave, but nothing was as smooth on the stage as the Etixx-Quickstep leadout for Mark Cavendish. Cavendish will enjoy wearing the leaders jersey heading into stage two, and its likely he will be gunning for the stage win again today. Enjoy this fantastic gallery courtesy of Darrell Parks!
