Murphy, 23, rides domestically with the Lupus Racing Team out of Atlanta, Georgia, and was picked up by the Spanish Pro Continental team as a stagiaire for the Pro Challenge. Murphy first turned heads at the US pro road race in May after making the winning break and placing ninth.
He turned more heads on Tuesday after jumping into the stage 2 breakaway, which lasted until the base of Arapahoe Basin. Before the start of the stage Murphy discussed how Caja Rural came to pick him up and his plans for the near future.
