The multi-stage Amgen Tour of California is the largest cycling event in North America and every May the course brings new challenges—gruelling mountain passes, epic coastline views, and dramatic sprint finishes—as well as opportunities for spectators to explore each host city throughout the week. “We want to make the course unique and continue to freshen things up,” says Amgen Tour of California President Kristin Klein. “We look at Tour of California as an international postcard from the state of California.”
The comprehensive Amgen Tour of California website has every resource you need to learn more about the race (such as detailed stage info, live updates, and daily race results), as well as exclusive opportunities to go behind the scenes with a ride in a peloton car or a front-row VIP spot at the finish line.
The 2017 course traverses some of California’s most beautiful roads and brings the peloton to new host cities, including Sacramento, Modesto, San Jose, Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, Santa Barbara, Santa Clarita, Ontario, Mt. Baldy, Big Bear Lake, Mountain High, Pasadena, South Lake Tahoe, Elk Grove.
