Amgen Tour of California
WHAT: Throughout seven stages over seven days, the world’s best cyclists will contest 600+ miles of roadways, highways and coastlines from Long Beach to Sacramento. The 2018 edition will mark the third time in race history that the peloton will travel the Golden State from south to north.
Stage 3 of the demanding race returns this year to Monterey and finishes at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca May 15. The iconic motorsports facility last hosted an Amgen Tour of California finish in 2016 in what was a thrilling ride down the Corkscrew and sprint toward the finish line before thousands of cheering fans.
The annual professional cycling events carry the distinction of being the only U.S. races on the UCI WorldTour calendar and attract some of the most renowned cyclists and teams in the world. With seven new courses between them, this is the 11th consecutive year the event has featured an international platform for both men’s and women’s racing.
WHEN: Tuesday, May 15
ADMISSION: Free to everyone. Information on road closures will be provided closer to the race.
