To observe the 10th anniversary edition of the Amgen Tour of California in 2015, organizers of the race have announced that the first two stages of the expanded women's portion of the race would be hosted by Tahoe South, on May 8-9. The competition will continue in Sacramento, May 10th, with a third racing stage, the same day as the overall men's start of the Amgen Tour of California.

"Hosting the first two segments of the women's race for the Amgen Tour of California's 10th anniversary provides an opportunity to challenge these athletes with our natural environment while elevating awareness of women's racing as a prestigious sport," said Carol Chaplin, executive director of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority. "Tahoe South and our partners are looking forward to welcoming the competitors, sponsors, fans and media to our area where the local culture enthusiastically supports, inspires, embraces and appreciates the sport."

The men's edition of the Amgen Tour of California race covers nearly 700 miles, traveling between 13 host cities over the course of eight days, on May 10-17. For further information on the 2015 Amgen Tour of California, visit www.AmgenTourofCalifornia.com.
