Video: Amgen Tour of California – Palm Springs Climb

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. Janier Acevedo (Jamis / Hagen Berman pb Sutter Home) went on to win the stage.

Watch as the riders suffer to make it up the final meters of the climb!
