AEG Sports, organisers of the 7th Amgen Tour of California, announced the details of the 2012 route which goes higher and could prove far more difficult than any edition to date.
The race takes in most of the climbs which have become iconic to the event - from the Coleman Valley ascent on stage 1, Bonny Doon Road on stage 2 to the summit finishes at Big Bear and Mt. Baldy, but local fans will be most excited to see the inclusion of Mount Diablo on the third day - one of the most frequently requested features in fan feedback - albeit not as a summit finish.
The final stage should be all but a parade lap around Los Angeles where, for the first time, the race visits famous tourists sites such as Beverly Hills, where the stage will commence, Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard, Chinatown and Dodger Stadium. The route concludes with a five mile circuit which finishes at L.A. Live.
