Hall wins stage 2 of Amgen bike race; competition moves out of Lake Tahoe

The first two stages of the Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women's Race finished up Friday, leaving only two more stages and marking the end of the race's run throughout the Tahoe Region.

American Katharine Hall with team UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling took the second stage, which included brutal climbs. Kingsbury Grade was part of the stage 2 course. Dutch rider Anna Van Der Breggen with team Boels Dolmans Cycling finished in second.

Stage 2 marks the completion of the courses in and around Tahoe. Stage 1 involved a trip around the lake. Riders will head to the flatlands of Sacramento Saturday for stage 3. The race concludes Sunday. This was the third straight year Tahoe has hosted at least one stage of the race.
