Tour of California 2014

Date range:
May 11-18

2014 Tour of California

The Amgen Tour of California has grown into North America's premiere race over its nine-year history, and it now attracts the world's top talent. Although some riders come to prepare for the Tour de France or to ramp back up into competition after the Spring Classics, the race has become the main objective for many riders.

 

Defending champion, Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing), will not be participating in the race this year. Instead he has chosen to focus on his preparations for the Tour de France. This year’s world-class peloton does include talents like 2012 Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky), Taylor Phinney and Thor Hushovd (BMC Racing), Janier Acevedo (Garmin-Sharp), Tom Boonen and Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep), Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing), Adam Yates (Orica-GreenEdge) and Peter Sagan (Cannondale), just to name a few.
