AMGEN TOUR OF CALIFORNIA

We’re showing some California love with a 7 stage event open to all Zwifters. The series of group rides go alongside the Amgen Tour of California, taking place May 13th-19th. Handpicked Zwift routes are inspired from the ones pros will face that day, bringing you closer to the action. In total, we’ll ride 116 miles // 186 km and climb 5,912 ft // 1,802 m over the series.

With start times happening every hour, joining in is easy! And you’ll want to finish as well — complete any stage to unlock the 2018 Amgen Tour of California kit and to be entered to win a signed 2018 Amgen Tour of California leader jersey and a pair of ASSOS bib shorts. One lucky Zwifter will be chosen at random each day. So take it home and rep the West Coast wherever you ride.
