The AMGEN Tour of California cuts its two-wheeled swath through Sonoma County today and local media can’t get enough. Beginning at 11 a.m. in Davis, the cyclists will log about 110 miles on a leg that will see them through Napa, over the treacherous Oakville Grade and down Trinity Road into the Sonoma County. No word if any of the teams will be doing any wine tasting along their way to Santa Rosa where this particular leg of the race ends. The Tour of California concludes in Los Angeles, seeing as it’s downhill from here, I suppose.
Here’s a video interview I recently conducted with the Bissell Pro Cycling Team while they trained in Santa Rosa:
