I’ve always wanted to drive down the California coast, but never could I have imagined doing it as part of the Amgen Tour of California race caravan. Each day of America’s Greatest Race brings new, unexpected adventures and today I found myself driving Stage 4 from Monterey to Cambria as the Lantern Rouge of the caravan tucked behind the Trek Factory Racing and Team Sky RVs.

After a testing time trial and the mountainous Queen stage, the battle for the Visit California Sprint Jersey is expected to resume during Wednesday’s Stage 4 in more comfortable weather conditions than the nearly 100-degree temperatures the peloton endured during Stage 3 if only because the entire 102.6 mile parcours takes place on the coast. The ride from Monterey to Cambria will roll along picturesque coastline terrain and en route will include one sprint at Big Sur just over 30 miles into the stage and three Michelob Ultra King of the Mountains climbs, but nothing too strenuous (two category 4 and one category 3 climbs).
