ABOUT THE ATOC
Since its 2006 inaugural, the Amgen Tour of California has become one of the pre-eminent professional cycling events in the world with over 100 international cyclists traversing over 700 miles of scenic state highways, back roads and coastline from northern to southern California.  An extra day and more varied terrain have been added to the route for 2009 which now starts in Sacramento.

Riding for Team Astana, legendary cyclist and 7-time winner of the Tour de France, Lance Armstrong will be in the peloton, as will ATOC defending champion Levi Leipheimer of Santa Rosa.  It will be Armstrong’s first race on U.S. soil since coming out of retirement.

The 2008 event drew 1.8 million spectators – the record for a single sporting event in the State of California, as well as for any cycling event ever held in the U.S.   Tour officials estimated that the 2008 race generated $100 million in economic growth for the state. Local merchants in Sausalito also benefited from the influx of visitors over the race weekend.

With stunning bay vistas and waterfront views, and now the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito will once again provide a dramatic backdrop for the Amgen Tour of California. The city is again planning a week of race-related activities for locals and visitors alike including the popular Tour de Cuisine.
