The Amgen Tour of California is designed to cover a variety of terrain, allowing diverse specialists in the peloton to shine throughout the week. Several fast and flat sections are on tap in Sacramento, Morgan Hill and Pasadena catering to sprinters – as well as a start overlooking the famous Laguna Seca motor speedway. Climbers will face challenges in South Lake Tahoe, the Diablo Mountain Range outside Stockton with its 4,625 foot elevation, and on multiple ascents between Pismo Beach and Ventura. Fans and teams alike will count down to the men’s and women’s Queen Stages from Ontario to Mt. Baldy, featuring a grueling 26-mile fan-favorite climb to the summit finish, a day that will shake up the leader board and can make or break the quest for overall victory.

“The Amgen Tour of California continues to serve as an international postcard for the state, showcasing the beauty and diversity of California – and the 2019 host cities certainly reflect that,” said Kristin Klein, president of the Amgen Tour of California and executive vice president of AEG Sports. “We look forward to hosting a dynamic and engaging race, which will feature an all-star peloton, continuing the tradition of delivering one of the most exciting sporting events in the country.”
