Amgen Tour of California 2012 Stage 2 - San Francisco to Aptos – 117.1 Miles

Sagan Scores His Second and Extends His Overall Lead

-by Michael Hopkins

Stage 2 of the AMGEN Tour of California started in the shadow of the golden gate Bridge, before the riders stood nearly 70 miles of rolling coastal roads before the stage got tough. With over 4,900 feet of climbing in the last 46.5 miles the course would likely put an end to any early breakaway. The day’s second major climb, Bear creek road, is 20 miles from Santa Cruz, though the narrow, twisty road that follows may impede any chasers in pursuit of a break..

The 2012 AMGEN Tour of California got underway with a 115.5 mile jaunt through Santa Rosa to Santa Rosa featuring beautiful views of the California wine country along, with a mix of relatively mundane terrain intermingled nicely with some noticeable bumpy sections. The parcours followed much the same route as does Levi Leipheimer's Gran Fondo.
