From its founding in 1777 as California's first city, San Jose has been a leader, driven by its spirit of innovation. Today, San Jose stands as the largest city in Northern California and the Capital of Silicon Valley—the world's leading center of innovation. The city, the 10th largest in the U.S., is committed to remaining a top-ranked place to do business, to work and to live.
"San Jose has a long cycling history: the city's first bicycle club was formed in 1884; one of the first pedal bicycles was invented here and we have ten, established international bike manufactures in the area. We are very proud once again to host the second Amgen Tour of California. This world-class cycling race builds on our rich cycling history and on the momentum created by the successful inaugural Amgen Tour of California. It definitely helps to further the City of San Jose and the greater South Bay region as a global center of professional cycling sport. We look forward to a great race in February 2008!"
