Amgen Tour of California will end at the Boardwalk

The Tour of California is a professional cycling stage race that covers about 650 to 700 miles of turf. It is a pretty intense tour, with a 2.HC rating (Hors Categorie - it's French for Beyond Categorization). Only two other US tours have that rating, Tour of Missouri and Tour of Georgia.

On May 18th, cyclists will finish stage 3 at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Stage 3 starts in San Francisco. This is the first year that the race is taking place in May, usually it happens in February. Santa Cruz Mayor Mike Rotkin hopes that this will bring in some tourism for the years that follow. I'll be there Mr. Rotkin! But I'm not a tourist.
