Gearing up for the AToC

The Tour of California may only be from Feb 14-22, but there's plenty of bike-related activity to keep you busy until then.


  • The Cherry Pie Criterium on Feb 8 in Napa looks like it will be a warmup race for Garmin-Chipotle as well as some Bissell and BMC riders.
  • The Webcor-sponsored San Jose Cycling Classic brings some crit-action to San Jose for those who can't make it up to Sacramento for the ToC start.
  • Astana has moved their training camp up to Santa Rosa. Media day is tomorrow but the training camp will run through the 10th.
  • The annual Breakaway From Cancer ride with George Hincapie will take place on Feb 8th in San Francisco.
  • Velolove on Feb 14th and Feb 15th will have the city of Santa Rosa ready to hail the arrival of the ToC peloton.

Update: TONIGHT Sports Basement will host a special San Jose Cycling Classic evening, 6-8 p.m., Tuesday, February 3, located at 1177 Kern Ave., in Sunnyvale. Eric Wohlberg, Kathryn Curi Mattis and Andy Jacques-Maynes will be there.
