Last year’s inaugural Amgen Tour of California Women’s Race empowered by SRAM was a sensational success showcasing a peloton filled with the world’s fastest female cyclists competing in a three-day stage race followed by an invitational time trial event. The ante is being upped in a big way in 2016 as the Amgen Tour of California Women’s Race empowered by SRAM, taking place May 19-22, is part of the inaugural UCI Women’s WorldTour and will include the first ever women’s team time trial as Stage 2 of America’s Greatest Race.

Pro cycling is a little poorer with the early retirement of UCI World Champion Greta Neimanas. One of the reasons the Amgen Tour of California was created was to showcase inspiring athletic achievement and the Twenty16 rider is as inspiring as any athlete who has ever pedaled a bicycle. Neimanas is categorized as a paracyclist, but she is a cyclist pure and simple - and a courageous pioneer to boot. The 27-year-old Evanston, Illinois native was the first American and only the second female paracyclist ever to sign a contract with a professional cycling team. Neimanas was also the first paracyclist ever to compete in the Amgen Tour of California.

Mother Nature played havoc on the women’s peloton last Sunday (July 26) at the second La Course by Le Tour de France. With the eyes of the entire cycling world focused on Paris’s stunning Champs-Élysées ahead of the Tour de France concluding Stage 21, the skies opened up turning the iconic cobbled streets comprising the 7km circuit into a virtual ice rink. Although it hadn’t rained on the Champs-Élysées for the men’s Tour finish in more than a decade, the women’s affair was crash-marred yet it didn’t dampen the fighting spirit of the turbo-charged world-class athletes participating in the sporting spectacle in front of thousands of spectators lining the course, including Amgen Tour of California executives Kristin Klein and Ryan Ung.
