The women’s opening stage returns to the City of Elk Grove, which made its first race appearance last year, this time beginning and ending in front of the new Aquatic Center and Commons on Civic Center Drive. The race will head west then south to the Sacramento River and the California Delta region. This is an 80-mile day with two Sprints and no Queen of the Mountain climbs (QOMs) – a very fast and flat route that should guarantee a day for the sprinters and an exciting finish back in Elk Grove. Soon after, the finish of the men’s Stage 5 will come down Civic Center Drive.

For the next three stages, the men will share the spotlight with the Women’s WorldTour event. About an hour after the women kick off their Stage 1 start in Elk Grove, the men will be at the start line near the waterfront sports arena in Stockton, which returns to the race for the first time since 2007. The race will head northeast into the historic gold mine area around Amador County, Buena Vista and the town of Ione. With just one small climb on the 110-mile stage, the peloton will be looking forward to a flat and fast day that will most certainly see the teams positioning their sprinters for an exciting finish in Elk Grove at the new Aquatic Center.
