Published October 16, 2007

LOS ANGELES, CA (BRAIN)–The 2008 Amgen Tour of California professional cycling road race will take place February 17-24, 2008, as confirmed yesterday by AEG, presenters of the record-setting ‘Tour de France-style’ cycling road race staged across many of California’s most scenic state highways, roadways and coastline drives.

Already considered cycling’s most important and successful road race held in the United States, the event’s third running will cover more than 700 miles (increased from 650 miles in 2007) over the eight days.

Through a series of local press conferences and briefings throughout the state, race organizers also announced the 12 official stage start and finish cities that have been selected for the 2008 race, including three new locales— Modesto, Palo Alto and Pasadena—that will join Sacramento, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clarita, Santa Rosa, Sausalito, Seaside and Solvang as host cities along the route.
