Amgen Tour of California Route Announcement

Mark Cavendish Climbing the Rock Store at Last Year’s Tour of California

If you’re a cycling enthusiast like me, you hate the cruel wait between the announcement of the route cities and the actual course itself. Well, Christmas comes today.

The Amgen Tour of California is having its tenth race running from May 10th – 17th. While no valley mention is likely, it will be skirting our nearby to Santa Clarita, Pasadena, Downtown and Mount Baldy.

I’ve always dreamed that the race would go through the Mount Hollywood Climb in Griffith Park. Even better, the climb to the Hollywood sign itself would match some of those Giro d’Italia finishes.

You can watch the Amgen Tour of California route announcement here at 11:30am.
