The 2016 Amgen Tour of California will celebrate its finale in Sacramento, California’s capital, on Sunday, May 22. This is the 11th annual edition of the race and is free to attend, so come on down and experience America’s Greatest Race.
California’s capital has hosted the Amgen Tour of California eight times, including the overall start for the past two years. This year will be Sacramento’s first overall finish for the race. The course will travel along the Sacramento River and cross Tower Bridge twice before returning downtown where fans will anxiously await the winner along the traditional finish circuit around the Capitol.
Last year was the closest men’s race finish ever with general classification champion Peter Sagan winning by a mere 3 seconds after earning an intermediate sprint time bonus and bonus seconds on the final stage sprint. What will this year bring?
