The 2014 Amgen Tour of California came to an end Sunday with Stage Eight. The final course was a circuit race that was held in Thousand Oaks. Along the route, the racers had to face three climbs and a sprint. Start time was 8:45 A.M. and it was 75.6 miles in length. Bradley Wiggins was the overall leader and wearer of the yellow jersey. It would have to take a monumental collapse for him to not only relinquish the jersey but the overall lead.

When it was all said and done, Stage Eight's winner was Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma -Quick Step) with a time of 2:53:50. John Degenkolb finished second (Team Giant-Shimano) followed by Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling). Overall leader Bradley Wiggins finished 20th but it was enough to win the Tour of California. Rohan Dennis (Team Garmin-Sharp) finished second and Lawson Craddock (Team Giant-Shimano) came in third. Garmin-Sharp won the cycling team competition.

Will Routley is the KOM (King of the Mountain) jersey holder and has held it for all eight stages. Peter Sagan is the sprint winner and has held that title four times. Lawson Craddock is the "Best Young Rider" a title he has held seven times during the race. Jack Bobridge (Belkin-Pro Cycling Team) has won the Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer® Most Courageous Rider Jersey.
