Ian Boswell produced a superb ride to claim third place on a highly selective second stage at the Tour of California.
"We knew from about 20km to go we could make it. We had a really cooperative group and we've all raced together quite a bit. I think it was the perfect combination of riders."
Sport Director Gabriel Rasch was also happy at how the day panned out. Taking us through the stage he explained to TeamSky.com: "When the break went it wasn't the big group we were hoping it would be. We said to the guys before Mt Hamilton that for sure LottoNL-Jumbo were going to ride and go full gas. That's what they did and from there it was just about holding on really.
"When Bennett attacked Boz could follow which was perfect. We told him not to do more than the other guys and just kept him updated. He did a good job. It was good to have Tao and David behind in the second group. All in all it was a really good team effort.
"Today everyone had a chance to show what shape they were in and be up there. Now we have Boz in a really good situation, and with Tao and David we have different tactics we can play."
