Tour of California 2013

Date range:
May 12-19, 2013

2013 Tour of California

The Amgen Tour of California has grown into North America's premiere race over its eight-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.
 

Peter Sagan, the rider with the record for stage wins in California, is due to return to his stomping grounds, although the 2013 parcours offers up a few obstacles in his path: on stage 1 Mt. Palomar, on stage 2 the climb to the finish in Palm Springs, and a mountain top finish on Mt. Diablo will limit opportunities for sprinters. Dave Zabriskie, Philippe Gilbert, and Tejay van Garderen are all set to ride.
