  • America’s Greatest Cycling Race

    The Amgen Tour of California is a Tour de France-style cycling road race that challenges the world’s top professional cycling teams to compete along a demanding course that traverses hundreds of miles of California’s iconic highways, byways and coastlines each spring. The teams chosen to participate have included Olympic medalists, Tour de France contenders and World Champions.


    Saturday, May 18, 2019

    This stage shares a common start and finish for the women and men, with two slight differences. Whereas the women will come straight up Angeles Forest Highway to Angeles Crest Highway, the men will turn on Upper Tujunga to add mileage and one final climb. The women conclude the day first, coming to the finish line and completing one lap. Just as they began the week with three Capitol circuits during Stage 1 in Sacramento, the men will blaze through three circuits of the Rose Bowl to conclude the race. Following the awards ceremony, the Rose Bowl will be hosting the inaugural Rose Pedal, open streets event, where attendees can cycle, run, or walk the closed course and participate in fitness activities for the remainder of the day.

    Lifestyle Festival

    10:00 am – 2:30 pm

    Designed to provide healthy lifestyle and cycling-related experiences, the Lifestyle Festival is a great event that provides a day of entertainment for fans of all ages. The Lifestyle Festival serves as the central hub for fans to interact with exhibitors and other enthusiasts as they wait for the cyclists to cross the finish line. The daylong festival will feature cycling products and demos, cancer awareness education, family activities, food, and entertainment. Visitors can congregate among fellow race watchers, take in live music, grab lunch or a beverage in the Michelob Ultra Beer Garden and watch the race live on outdoor video screens. A free bike valet will be available at the Lifestyle Festival.
