ABOUT THE EVENT

The Amgen Tour of California Race Experience was a spring focal point for 10 years here at CTS. With the cancellation of the race in 2020, our new event the, Golden State Epic, is set to capture the features athletes liked most about the Race Experience and upgrades features we now have more flexibility with.

The Golden State Epic will feature 6 days of big point-to-point rides, epic climbs, world-class scenery, and the on- and off-bike support you expect from CTS. And because we have increased flexibility, we will have later start times in the mornings, shorter or non-existent transfers, upgraded hotel accommodations, and better food.

We’ve hand picked some of the best routes in California that will take you through towering redwood trees, world famous wine country, by sweeping ocean views, and over epic mountain passes in Lake Tahoe.
