Annual Spectator of the Best Cycling Race in the US
Every year I look forward to going out and watching the cyclists compete in the Amgen Tour of California. It is the biggest professional bike race in the United States and usually has some of the sport’s best talent. I chose the second stage to go and watch as it provided some good hills to watch the riders as they ascend. Stage 2 started in Rancho Cordova and ended in South Lake Tahoe. I chose a spot just north of Placerville that gave me good sight lines down the road. As a fellow cyclist, it always blows me away how fast the pros ride up such steep climbs.
