Even if you are like me and don't follow sports, you most likely know that the Amgen Tour of California started this past Saturday in Sacramento. It is everywhere.
Event organizers tout the Amgen tour as "America's most important cycling competition" and a "world class race." The eight-day race is a Tour de France-style cycling road race which takes place over a 750-mile course from Sacramento to Escondido. Each day the race begins in a new city and ends in a new city.
