Regarded as one of the most sports-friendly cities in the country, Sacramento welcomes the Amgen Tour of California for the ninth time. The festivities start with the men rolling across the iconic Tower Bridge into race-friendly West Sacramento. An hour later, the women will begin their final stage of a three-day race on the Capitol circuit.

After passing through West Sacramento, the men will follow the Sacramento River into the city of Woodland then traverse several rural roads in Yolo County. A quick sprint in Winters will see the race turn east and toward the final finish to Sacramento. This 90-mile stage is a sprinter’s paradise – no KOMs and virtually no elevation gains. Race fans will be rewarded with the peloton barreling down L Street to the finish line and the start of three loops around the infamous Capitol circuit to conclude the 2018 event in the shadow of the State Capitol Building. Sacramento has never failed to deliver one of the most exciting race finishes on the WorldTour Calendar, and the week’s big winners will be recognized in a special ceremony immediately following the race.
