Amgen Results
Frenchman Sylvain Georges of AG2R La Mondiale won the climb to Big Bear of the2012 Amgen Tour of California. Exhausted and completely rung out he crossed the finish line with the main field of riders closing in.  Thousands of spectators watched cheered and rang their cow bells as Sylvian dug deep up Summit Boulevard to the finish arena. The Frenchman Sylvain nearly collapsed then sat on the pavement as his team matesand fellow riders came to congratulate him on his emotional and grueling stage win.

StageWinner Sylvain Georges went on to say that this was the biggest win in hiscareer.  He felt strong early on in the stage and knew he had the legs tofinish.  Near the end he knew it was all or nothing so he gave it his alland came out victorious.
