2012 Amgen Tour of California Stage 4 Finish

Home Page

On Wednesday, May 16, 2012 the world's best cyclists will make their way from Sonora to Clovis during Stage 4 of the Amgen Tour of California.

The eight-day event spans the Golden State in a challenging course that will include nearly 800 miles of scenic California highways and roadways.  And Clovis is in the middle of it all.

At 130 miles, Stage 4 is the longest stage of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California, and possibly the most difficult. This will be the race’s first visit to Sonora, and the second time that it has been to Clovis.  As the riders roll south from the start, towards Mariposa and Oakhurst (both Sprint cities), they will enjoy the incredible beauty and challenge of historic Highway 49. As they skirt Yosemite, they will encounter everything from three KOMs, twisty and technical descents, and raging rivers, but very few sections of flat roadway. Once through Mariposa, Highway 49 widens a bit, but two more KOMs will await the cyclists as they head to the final Sprint in Oakhurst. The riders will no doubt be fearless as they attack the final 40 miles into the return to Clovis, perhaps recalling the snow and ice along this same route in 2009.

What better way to help celebrate Clovis’ 100th anniversary than to watch a thundering peloton sprint to the same finish won by Mark Cavendish in 2009?  Take the day off and don't miss a minute of the action.
