The inaugural race of the Amgen tour of California was held in February. It featured some of the world’s best teams racing 600 miles in eight stages, but only along California’s coast. For the 2nd annual race, Sacramento’s being looked at … as well as Stockton. The California race will change its course every year. 

The Sacramento Sports Commission is eager to bring the 140 top cyclists to the city, along with their support staffs and fans. More than a million spectators lined the route last February … and it was broadcast internationally. No decision on Sacramento’s bid for inclusion has been reported.
