Stage 8: Start in Beverly Hills, on Rodeo Dr at 10:10am, 5 loops begin *(map above) in Los Angeles at 11:01am, the Finish will be between 11:42am and 11:58am (depending on the speed of the racers) at the Finish area on 11th and Figueroa.
If 5-miles is not enough, you could be one of the select few citizens who will be joining the Chris Carmichael "Going Pro" team and riding prior to the pros at every stage of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California. How this will work out logistically still baffles my mind, but you can read more about it here, (keep in mind it'll cost you $11,500): 2012 CTS Amgen Tour of California Race Experience. This same experience will be offered at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado in August 2012.
