BIG BEAR LAKE, CA (VN) — American rider Ian Boswell saw his shot at the Amgen Tour of California’s final podium evaporate during Friday’s individual time trial. Boswell put for a steady effort along the 15-mile course, which traced a winding route along Big Bear Lake. But he dropped time to both Andrew Talansky (Cannondale-Drapac) and Brent Bookwalter (BMC Racing) who leapfrogged him in the overall standings.

After the race, Boswell admitted that his effort in Thursday’s climb to Mount Baldy, compounded with the high-altitude course at Big Bear Lake (7,000 feet), created a challenging scenario for him on Friday.

“It was a big learning experience in a lot of regards,” Boswell said. “It’s the first real GC I’ve gone for, so it’s been a big learning experience.”

Boswell enters Saturday’s final stage in fifth place, one minute down on race leader George Bennett (Lotto-Jumbo).
