It was a hot one last month during the Amgen Tour of California and everywhere you looked you saw the ubiquitous Skratch Labs neutral support vehicles mobilized to keep the peloton and race staff hydrated. I had never tried their drink mix and was grateful to receive half a dozen samples of the Exercise Hydration Mix to take home, which I put to the test out on the open road.
While all the buzz is about the men’s and women’s Amgen Tour of California races, what about the little ones? We’ve got you covered. The Strider Toddler Races are for children ages 2-5 that will take place in Sacramento (May 11), Santa Barbara (May 15), Pasadena (May 17) and Thousand Oaks (May 18). Entry is free. On-site registration takes place one hour prior to the race at the Entertainment Stage at the Lifestyle Festival and is limited to 15 competitors. Each child must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and will receive a Strider medal and an Amgen Tour of California goodie bag.
Man, is it close! We are just over a week away from the start of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California. So much to do before I pack up the car for the drive to Sacramento ahead of the Stage 1 start on Sunday, May 11.
Attending America’s Greatest Race is a fun and exciting day for all and one of the highlights is visiting the Amgen Tour of California Lifestyle Festival located at each of the finish line host cities. Thousands of spectators gather at the Amgen Tour of California Lifestyle Festival where they can watch the race on outdoors video screens while awaiting the arrival of the peloton for the thrilling finish. There is so much to see, do and learn that you can literally spend all day at the festival enjoying live music, food and beverages, entertainment and interactive experiences, shop for race merchandise, play games, and discover and demo new cycling products along with the latest tips for healthy living.
