Tour of California
The Amgen 2010 Tour of California will hit the roadways under sunny skies when it moves to May 16th through the 23rd for its fifth run.
Organizers announced the host cities and the stages today and Stage 4 on Wednesday May 19th will have the cyclists heading from San Jose to Modesto. The final route for that stage has not been announced but it could push through parts of Tracy. Last year's similar stage had the race skirt the roadways south of Tracy and drew huge crowds in the rain.
the May date hopes for better weather and the opportunity to head into the mountains for challenging climbs. Some of the riders have announced their plans to compete in the race including Lance Armstrong with his new Team Radio Shack.
