Live stage coverage every day

Cyclingnews will be delivering live coverage of the entire 2013 Amgen Tour of California, starting on Sunday, May 12 with the opening stage in Escondido.

You won't want to miss a moment of the action as the peloton tackles two mountainous routes in the first two stages. The first stage features Palomar Mountain and Cole Grade, which will form the first selection of the overall contenders, and then on the second day a very hot and difficult uphill finish in Palm Springs will drive a wedge into the gaps.

Three unpredictable stages could favor the escape artists or sprinters, and then the overall contenders will face the San Jose time trial and its torturous uphill finale.

Mt. Diablo caps off the seventh stage where the final overall winner will seal the victory before a short, fast stage from San Francisco to Santa Rosa completes the week.

Cyclingnews' live coverage will start at the following times:

Stage 1: Escondido - Escondido, 11:15am
Stage 2: Murrieta - Palm Springs, 10:20am
Stage 3: Palmdale - Santa Clarita, 11:20am
Stage 4: Santa Clarita - Santa Barbara, 12:35pm
Stage 5: Santa Barbara - Avila Beach, 11:00am
Stage 6: San Jose (ITT) - , 1:00pm
Stage 7: Livermore - Mt. Diablo, 11:35am
Stage 8: San Francisco - Santa Rosa, 8:15am

Will you show those who are protesting against the fake suspensions of the dopers.... Will you take to task that certain Riders rode the Tour de France after admitting doping and should have been suspended on the spot.. no you wont..because everyone knew at last year's tour these dopers should not have been racing.. and THAT is a disgrace and makes us turn off to the teams that supported and knew about this sham.
