The Amgen Tour of California, America’s premier cycling event, returns to South Lake Tahoe for the Men’s Stage 2 finish from Rancho Cordova at Heavenly Mountain Resort, May 13, 2019.
The world’s best male cyclists will contest 750+ miles of roadways, highways, and coastlines from Sacramento to Pasadena, for seven stages, May 12-18, 2019. This year’s course will highlight the distinct beauty of Northern, Central and Southern California. The 2019 host cities feature the return of fan and race team town favorites like South Lake Tahoe, long-time veterans like Sacramento and Pasadena, and the first-time start in Rancho Cordova.
The annual Amgen Tour of California events carry the distinction of being the only U.S. races on the UCI WorldTour calendar and have helped launch some of today’s star cyclists while continuing to attract the best competitors and teams in the world. With seven new courses between them, the event’s legacy as an international platform for both men’s and women’s racing will hold a special significance this year as Olympic hopefuls gear up for Tokyo 2020.
