Today’s stage of the Amgen Tour of California was cancelled because of hazardous road conditions. I present for your bicycle race enjoyment Masters and Category 4 & 5 excitement from the Scotts Valley Grand Prix today.
The Sacramento Grand Prix took place around the Capitol building in Sacramento as a prelude to today’s Amgen Tour of California Stage 1 finish.
The winner of the one hour women’s criterium, Coryn Rivera for Team Peanut Butter and Company, is a 17 year old national champion with gold medals in Road, Track and Cyclocross. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, who himself was an athletic competitor, congratulates Coryn on her win.
I’m about to miss the start of the women’s criterium in the Sacramento Grand Prix, but here are a couple of photos from one of the men’s races this morning.
