Stage 6 - San Jose, May 17
The 2013 Amgen Tour of California will return to the original time trial course we used in 2006, with a wicked stinger at the end! This 20-mile course will feature a climb, soon after the riders push off the starting ramp. As the racers navigate around beautiful lakes and golf courses, they will begin to prepare for the most difficult finish that any Amgen Tour of California time trial course has offered. As the riders make their final right hand turn on the route, they will come face-to-face with the climb up Metcalf Rd. to the finish. This is a 3km climb that will see the riders gain nearly 1,000’ in elevation. This climb will feature several pitches over a 10% grade.
