Los Angeles CA — Tommy D secured his second consecutive podium spot at the Amgen Tour of California with a solid ride on Mt Baldy finishing less than 30 seconds after stage winner Robert Gesink. Overall, Tom finishes 3rd, just 54 seconds behind Gesink.

Danielson was proud of the way his team raced, despite coming into the race with three leaders and coming away without the overall win. "The team rode to the plan from start to finish. We really wanted to win the race. We had a very young team that had to support three leaders (himself, Zabriskie and Andrew Talansky), they rode above themselves.
