Peter Sagan and the sun shine brightly on Stage 5 of the 2011 Amgen Tour of California in Paso Robles

Team RadioShack's Chris Horner Retains the Lead After the Longest Stage of the Race

Stage 5 WinnersPASO ROBLES, Calif. (May 19, 2011) - With the sun shining and an enthusiastic crowd cheering, 21-year-old Peter Sagan (SVK) of Liquigas-Cannondale raced across the finish line, narrowly beating Leigh Howard (AUS) of HTC-Highroad and Ben Swift (GBR) of Sky Procycling, who placed second and third, respectively, to clinch the Stage 5 win during the 2011 Amgen Tour of California in a time of five hours, 16 minutes and three seconds. The longest stage of this year's race, the 135.1-mile route was originally intended to travel along California's iconic Highway 1, but had to be modified last month when landslides blocked the road after late winter storms. The new route tested the riders' endurance and delivered a spectacular sprint to the finish in Paso Robles, Calif., after winding its way through one of the most beautiful stages in the history of the race.
