2010 Amgen Tour of California

For the first time, the Amgen Tour of California cycling event will occur in May instead of February.

Why did it take them so long? :-)

Granted, February in California can be a great BEACH month, if it doesn’t rain. If it RAINS, February can be a lousy BICYCLING month (especially for spectators)! Also, if the race planners ever think about including a Sierra Nevada region in a leg of the race, even May may be too early, because of snow! February would be out of the question!

The 2010 event will occur May 16-23, 2010. The eight legs of the race (guess that it is an arachnid :-) ) are shown on a map of California on the official site. The official site also has everything from tour news to official tour merchandise to “Things to Know When You Are Looking for a Bike.” There is even a link to learn more about team Jelly Belly!

The varied topography of California (and all of its man-made features) should help to make the race visually exciting for years and years to come!
