California Dreamin’: Looking Back At ATOC’14

Photo Report: Just over a week ago Bradley Wiggins wrapped up the GC title at the 2014 Tour of California but for our photographer Angelica Dixon the memories are still very fresh. Here's a look back at her fave photos and experiences from the startlines, finishlines, on the moto and more.

Photo Report: California’s Final Stage

Photo Report: The final stage of the 2014 Tour of California around Thousand Oaks was anything but a procession with a dangerous breakaway, the eventual winner being dropped early and fighting back and of course some more spectacular Californian scenery. Once again Darrell Parks was there to capture it all for PEZ.

Photo Report: ATOC Stage 7

Another hot and scenic day in California saw Peter Sagan get his first win of the race this year after a tough day out in the saddle from Santa Clarita to Pasadena. Once again Darrell Parks was there to capture it all for PEZ.

ATOC’14 St.6: Wiggo Defends, Chaves Wins

Photo Report: Garmin, Orica, BMC and more tried to put pressure on the race leader Bradley Wiggins on the mountainous Stage 6 route but in the end Wiggo and his team answered all questions raised of them. Once again Darrell Parks was there for PEZ to capture it all as the scenery seemingly gets more spectacular everyday. Great racing, weather and scenery - can it get any better than this?

ATOC’14 St.5: Phinney Does It Alone!

Photo Report: After another superb day of racing through more spectacular Californian countryside it was Taylor Phinney who took the initiative after the last KOM to solo away for the win and upset the sprinter's teams. Once again ace photographer Darrell Parks was there to capture all the action for PEZ.

ATOC’14 St.4: Routley Wins Big!

Photo Report: Stage 4 saw some spectacular coastal scenery, an expected sprint stage turn out to be perfect for a break and Optum's Will Routley experience a day that he will never ever forget. PEZ's ace photographer Darrell Parks was on the scene to capture all the best images.

ATOC’14 St.3: Dennis Takes The Queen

Photo Report: Stage 3's Queen stage in California was a hot and difficult affair and despite a steady stream of attacks from his rivals Bradley Wiggins managed to hold on to his yellow jersey but lost time to stage winner Rohan Dennis.

ATOC’14 St.2: Speedy Sir Wiggo

Photo Report: 2014 might just be the year of the return of Sir Bradley Wiggins. His performance in Monday's 20.1 kilometer individual test around Folsom was superb as he burned around the tarmac to take a solid lead in the GC standings. Once again photog Darrell Parks was in the thick of the action for PEZ in California to capture all the best shots.

ATOC’14 St.1: Cav By A Whisker!

Photo Report: The Tour of California kicked off on Sunday in Sacramento and PEZ's ace photographer Darrell Parks was there to cover all the action and superb scenery. The stage came down to a bunch kick and the tightest winning margin ever in the race's history where even the winner wasn't sure that he'd won!
