Unfortunately due to weather concerns and icy road conditions, Amgen organizers have cancelled the Stage 2 start from Squaw Valley this morning. The race will now start at 12:15 PT on Broad Street in Nevada City and will end in Sacramento (as originally planned). Riders should be arriving from their 61 mile trek into Sacramento around 3PM and will do 3 circuits (originally scheduled for just 1),ending Stage 2 around 3:30-3:45 PT at the Capital Building.
This is a sad turn of events for both the hard working volunteers as well as the organizers who have worked for months preparing for this event. Mother Nature had other plans this year, showing us how fragile the month of May in Truckee and Tahoe can be. Hopefully we can have another shot at it next year…who knows, it could be in the 80’s!!
