California has always been the place where big dreams come true. The Amgen Tour of California and Visit California teamed up to make Glendale, Arizona’s Andrea Barron’s dreams come true when she won the Dream Big Sweepstakes sending her and a guest to watch the first two stages of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California. Barron received VIP access and treatment all weekend in Sacramento, including roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations along with an official Amgen Tour of California merchandise package and an autographed leader’s jersey. The vivacious Barron introduced herself to me while hob knobbing with race execs, sponsors and VIPs at a private ZD Wines event in Old Town Sacramento the day before the race started. Overflowing with infectious joy, Barron’s warm and generous spirit is evident in her winning smile. We’ve kept in touch and recently I chatted with the Senior Technical Project Manager at AT&T about her experiences visiting the Amgen Tour of California.

Congratulations. You just won the opening stage of the Amgen Tour of California. Now hurry up! After Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) won Stage 1 in Sacramento today in an electrifying sprint besting John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano) by a few centimeters, I followed the British champ on his post-race rounds.

Fresh from the press conference, here’s what Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) had to say about winning today’s opening stage of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California after an incredibly close two-man dash to the line over John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano).
