Joey Rosskopf of the BMC Racing Team rode to a season-best fourth-place performance in Friday's individual time trial at the Amgen Tour of California to move into the same position overall with two days of the race to go.

Rosskopf finished 20 seconds off the winning time of Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo), who took the overall lead. Sagan covered the flat, 10.6-kilometer course near the Magic Mountain theme park in 12:31 to displace Stage 3 winner Toms Skujins (Hincapie Racing), who is now second, 28 seconds off the lead. BMC Racing Team's Daniel Oss was 28 seconds behind Sagan, good for 10th place on the day.

Joe Van Edem (Team LottoNL-Jumbo) was second on the stage, 15 seconds back, while Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-Quick Step), was one second faster than Rosskopf for third. Ben Hermans, who finished 24th, is next-best-placed for the BMC Racing Team overall, 1:09 off the lead in 14th place.

Saturday's 128.7-kilometer race from Ontario to a summit finish at Mt. Baldy is the "queen stage" of the eight-day race and is expected to further alter the overall standings. The race concludes in Pasadena with a circuit race around the Rose Bowl Stadium.
