VeloNews reports that the Amgen Tour of California Pro Cycling Race will begin on Sunday, February 17, with a prologue in San Francisco. The Tour of California is the best funded pro cycling stage race in U.S. history, and I'm sorry that I won't be there.
ESPN2 will carry same-day highlights of the eight day event. A one hour program will air at 10:00pm Pacific Standard Time (1:00am Eastern). Highlights will also be available on Google Video. Set your TiVo now.
