This week ‘In Focus’ we’re throwing it back to the 2010 Amgen Tour of California. The fifth anniversary of the race held lots of excitement for our guides and guests as Australian Michael Rogers fought to hold off Americans David Zabriskie and Levi Leipheimer.
Captrued by Trek Travel Marketing Manager Mark Thomsen, the photo below was taken at the Stage 4 start in San Jose. Looking back at our 2010 itinerary we see many similarities to this year’s trip, with stays at the Westlake Village Inn and Lake Arrowhead Resort and a live race viewing of the stage finish on Big Bear.
Five years later, this year’s race marks the 10th Anniversary of the Amgen Tour of California! Ride along the Pacific coast and into the mountains above Santa Barbara’s “American Riviera”; attend the individual time trial at Big Bear; and enjoy the suspense of a summit stage finish at Mt Baldy. Cheer with the crowds as they urge their heroes onwards and sip cocktails at an exclusive Trek Travel party. To top off this ultimate Tour of California vacation, spend the last two days riding and relaxing in the beauty of the Santa Monica Mountains and Malibu coastline.
Drawing from our years of experience providing unparalleled vacations to cycling’s greatest races, we promise to bring you closer to the action than ever before.
