The Amgen Tour of California, which will take place from May 12-19, will be making a special announcement Tuesday afternoon regarding the 2013 Amgen Tour of California, America’s largest professional road cycling race, and the City of Escondido. Several Escondido city officials will be on hand, as well as special guests from AEG, presenter of the Amgen Tour of California.
It has been rumored that Escondido will be the starting line city for the 2013 Amgen Tour of California, indicating that the event may run from South to North.
In 2009, Escondido was a finishing Host City and greeted the riders at the finish line with large enthusiastic crowds of 40,000 spectators after the Stage started in Rancho Bernardo then climbed up Palomar Mountain.
