ToCal St4: Inside The Winning Car

Team Toyota-United’s JJ Haedo scored a brilliant win of today’s Queen stage along the California coast. It was a full-team effort as ds’s Frankie Andreu & Harm Jansen plotted the winning strategy, then assigned their men to deliver the win. Pez was along for the ride and here’s how it unfolded …
