returning to California in 2017 is 2016 Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women's Race Empowered with SRAM defending Champion and current UCI Womens World Tour Champion Megan Guarnier racing for the Boels–Dolmans team.

"The Amgen Tour of California has been a superb addition to the Women's World Tour calendar," said Guarnier.  "As an American, I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to race at the highest level on American soil.  The Amgen Breakaway From Heart Disease Women's Race Empowered with SRAM creates the most professional platform to showcase women's racing alongside the long-running men's race, and the organization ensures that there is media coverage surrounding the event further elevating the exposure of our event for our current, and I dare say our future, fan base. 

The Amgen Tour of California features a variety of terrains, allowing different types of athletes shine; with the hilly stages and the sprint stages it allows us to demonstrate our breadth of talent within the women's peloton.  I am personally excited to return to the Amgen Tour of California and the rare opportunity to race on home-soil in my current home-State," continued Guarnier. “I always love racing in front of the home-crowd.  It energizes me and pushes me to top performances."

The 2017 race will mark the first year the men's race has been elevated to UCI WorldTour status, making it the only stage race in North America to receive this prestigious classification. The upcoming race will also be the tenth consecutive year that a women’s competition will be held as part of the Amgen Tour of California.

Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women's Race empowered with SRAM

Thursday, May 11   Stage 1 - South Lake Tahoe
Friday, May 12       Stage 2 - South Lake Tahoe
Saturday, May 13   Stage 3 - Elk Grove to Sacramento
Sunday, May 14     Stage 4 - Sacramento
Stage 1 – South Lake Tahoe, May 11, 2017
The women will start things off with a race around one of the most beautiful race routes in the USA: the Lake Tahoe Loop. The final climb will lead riders up to the finish at the Heavenly Mountain Resort.

Stage 2 – South Lake Tahoe, May 12, 2017
While the race will have a common start and finish at the Heavenly Mountain Resort, the route is entirely new to the Amgen Tour of California. Given that South Lake Tahoe is surrounded by mountains, this will be a difficult day for the peloton. The riders will face summits in excess of 7,300-feet leading to what promises to be a climatic finish.

Stage 3 – Elk Grove to Sacramento, May 13, 2017
The Amgen Tour of California welcomes the City of Elk Grove as a first-time Host City. The women’s penultimate stage will feature one of the most beautiful parks in Elk Grove, before heading south to the California “Delta Region”. While this stage is flat and a welcome relief for the tired legs coming out of the mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe, the winds in the Delta can be menacing and unpredictable. The Sacramento River will lead the riders into Sacramento for an exciting sprint finish in front of the Capitol building.

Stage 4 – Sacramento, May 14, 2017
A fan and racer favorite, the women will take center stage on the finishing circuits around the State Capitol building in Sacramento. The day of racing will be fast and furious and one to remember. If you love watching the men on these circuits, wait until you see the women tearing up the road as they protect the yellow jersey and deliver their sprinter to win on this final day of racing for the women.
