Bradley Wiggins took a briliant win at the our of California last month. Dana Gardner captured the action and atmosphere from the final weekend at America's greatest bike race.

A bearded Bradley Wiggins enjoyed his victory of the season with the top spot at the oir of California and a margin of 30-second over Rohan Dennis (Garmin-Sharp).

Wiggins immediately thanked his teammates: “I've said it every day but without those guys I wouldn’t be in this position. You can’t do it on your own and as strong as my performance was individually in the time trial, my team have taken the strain all week.

“Those young Americans in my team, Joe, Ian and Danny have done a fantastic job - even today they didn’t give up the chase and came back after they’d been distanced on the climbs. This is a fantastic way to finish.”

“This win is right up there in terms of satisfaction – to come here and have the reception we’ve had from the American public – it’s been unreal. It’s always an honour to wear a yellow jersey and I set my stall out to come and win the Tour of California, and I wanted to add my name to the guys who came before me. I’ve done that now and at 34 years old, it’s still nice to be winning on this stage.”

The final stage win went to Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma Quickstep)
