Sam Boardman
Miguel Bryon
Michael Hernandez
Alex Hoehn
Travis McCabe
Tyler Stites
Keegan Swirbul

While McCabe has done very well in the other big US races, he's never really been able to replicate that in California. That probably won't change here, but he is their best available sprint option. Swirbul might be able to do a top 10 or 15 if he has good day on Baldy.

From the initial long list of ten, the three who missed out are Putt, Williams and Rhim.

Anybody they missed?

I'm assuming Warbasse and Bookwalter have prior engagements with their respective teams. Otherwise I would have gone with one of them as a road captain.

Gage Hecht had a bad crash earlier in the season (fractured skull) and has only just got back on his bike the past few weeks. The race has come too early for him.

Stephen Bassett is the guy in form this year. Won the Queen stage at Redlands and followed that up with the GC at Joe Martin. Unlucky to miss out you feel.
