We’ve teamed up with Amgen Tour of California (ATOC) to bring you a series of Segment Challenges that give you the chance to compare yourself against the world’s best on four iconic climbs of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California.
By joining one or all of the Segment Challenges below, you have the chance to test your mettle on some of the marquee climbs before the pro riders attack the very same segments during the official race in May. By uploading your rides to Strava before the conclusion of each Segment Challenge, you can compare your performance against the pros, many of whom will be tracking their efforts on Strava throughout the 8-stage, 750-mile race.
The Segment Challenges will cover the following climbs. Riders have up until the day of the official Amgen Tour of California stage starts to clock their best effort
- April 20-May 13: Stage 1 – Join Coleman Valley Road
- April 20-May 14: Stage 2 – Join Bonny Doon
- April 20-May 15: Stage 3 – Join Mt. Diablo
- April 20-May19: Stage 7 – Join Mt. Baldy
Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in two categories for both men and women: The fastest time and greatest number of attempts on each segment. In addition, all riders who participate in at least one Segment Challenge will be entered to win a jersey signed by an Amgen Tour of California stage winner.
Good luck riders!
