Photo Gallery: Amgen Tour of California, Stage 2 – Murrieta to Palm Springs

The 2013 Amgen Tour of California continued with Stage 2, which started in Murrieta and finished on the very steep Palm Springs Tram climb in Palm Springs. The temperatures soared to a toasty 114 degrees, which made the final climb especially brutal for the riders and fans alike.

Below is a Photo Gallery from the final ascent to the finish.
