' Fabio Andres Duarte Arevalo
on Bianchi Sempre
placed fifth at Tour of California, the stage-race run in the US on May 13th-20th
. His team-mate
Darwin Atapuma Hurtado
was 16th overall and third in the Mountains classification.
Atapuma and Duarte shown off in the stage-7, 126 km from Ontario to Mt. Baldy
, taking second and third position respectively. Atapuma went really close to his second seasonal victory on Bianchi Sempre, after the epic one under the snow on
top at Giro del Trentino: Colombia's rider leaded the race until the last kilometer, then sprinted for victory with Robert Gesink. Duarte completed the podium, thanks to a great recovery on the last uphill, where he got ahead of the
further runaways and crossed the finish line one minute and 14 seconds behind Gesink and Atapuma.
