In an unprecedented event the city of Santa Rosa, located in the heart of Northern California’s Sonoma Wine Country will host the overall finish of the world wide prestigious Amgen Tour of California. The quaint town known as one of the top cycling destinations in the world has previously hosted the start and proceedings for the tour but this is the first time in its history that the route will go north instead of south starting in Southern California, heading north during the eight-day race, with a grand finale in Santa Rosa. The Santa Rosa Convention & Visitors bureau has worked closely with the local organizing committee since inception in 2006 to host participants and viewers of the event. The finish will ride into town on Sunday May 19th 2013. See website for more details.
