T of C, Stage 1, I think...

They posted the routes, but there isn't enough detail in the map in order to get the complete route. So I made some guesses and mapped it out at RideWithGPS. Here it is (I think):http://ridewithgps.com/routes/31561

About 100 miles, 6500 feet, and mostly downhill.

Looks good to me. My tentative plan is to be on the Foresthill Bridge (south sidewalk) and watching them come by. Then look down as they descend into the confluence and climb back up the canyon on 49. After that I hop in the car and jam over to the finish. Oooh, I'm looking forward to this!

Looks like they changed the route for stage 2 a little bit. Different route into Santa Rosa from Napa Valley.

http://www.amgentourofcalifornia.com...log-stage1.pdf

No sprints or KOM posted yet, though.

Nowhere in the map, log or profile do I see the sprints or KOM.
I haven't watched the videos, no speakers at work.
But at Velonews/competitor they do mention a sprint point and a Cat 4 climb. That can't be all of them, though.
Wonder where they got there info and why it's not on the releases today.

The Cat 4 climb is likely the one up 49 from the Confluence after descending Old ForestHill. No idea where the sprint point will be.

The article I linke to says Meadow Vista; but there should be more than one sprint over the first two stages.

Good job on the route details except you left out the swing through Old Town in Auburn. We are driving all the routes starting next Monday to layout the sprints, KOMs, and feed zones. Sprints for Stage 1 will be Auburn and Meadow Vista.

Stage 3 and 4 up today.

Keep us posted on sprints and KOM.

I'm hoping/planning to travel with the whole tour with my popup trailer. I've got camping for the first four stages planned; trying to figure out the next stages - hence the anticipation for the actual routes.

Kool.
I am trying to decide from where to watch it. I was thinking of taking my moto to Tunitas Creek then shortcut through skyline to watch them climb 84.

I think I'm going to drive up to NC for the start, then over to Auburn to watch the climb out of the canyon, and then back downtown for the finish.

I'll be downtown for the finish of stage 1. Amgen is on the events list for Team Radioshack, which is awesome. Looking forward to seeing them, and hopefully Lance!

Stage 4 looks like it'll start right near my house, but it's hard to tell from the crummy official maps. Are there better maps somewhere that I'm not seeing?

Ah, I missed the cue sheet, thanks. It's not coming down my street, but it will pass within a half block. Neat.

It's kind of tempting to ride up Sierra Rd. and watch them climb, though...
