Round 8 of the UCI Women’s WorldTour, and it’s another stage race, this time in the USA – the Amgen Tour of California. While the race ran last year, this is a very different beast – with the women’s stages running alongside the men’s on the same days, so benefiting from the same promotion and hopefully crowds, with some serious racing.
This year it’s four stages:
- Stage 1 hilly Lake Tahoe Road Race, 19th May from 10:50am USA PDT (1:50pm USA EDT; 6:50pm UK BST; 19:50 Euro CEST; 3:50am Aussie AEST)
- Stage 2 Folsom Team Time Trial, 20th May, from 10:30 PDT (1:30pm EDT; 6:30pm BST; 19:30 CEST; 3:30am AEDT)
- Stage 3 Santa Rosa rolling Road Race, 21st May from 9:15am PDT (12:15 EDT; 5:15pm BST; 18:15 CEST; 2:15am AEDT)
- Stage 4 Sacramento Crit, 22nd May, from 11:40am PDT (2:40pm EDT; 7:40pm BST; 20:40 CEST; 4:40am AEST)
While the men’s race has live streaming, the women’s doesn’t – but it does have coverage, including the usual great graphics and GPS info, on the Tour Tracker women’s race page, updated by the wonderful Clara Beard, and apps for Android and Apple.
