Van Garderen sharing leadership with Bookwalter - Tour of California
Tejay van Garderen is motivated for the Tour of California and happy to be back racing in his home country. But the BMC Racing rider explained at the pre-race press conference that he is sharing the role of team leader with fellow American Brent Bookwalter.
"This race wasn't actually on my programme from the beginning of the year, while Brent's been focused on this race from the beginning," Van Garderen explained. "That being said, we're both super-motivated. We're both very capable of podium results, and even top-step podium results. I think it's only going to help us having two cards to play."
