Amgen Tour of California Stage 6 Men’s Individual Time Trial – Friday, May 19, 2017
May 19, 2017 – Stage 6
At 6,752’ and featuring one of the most beautiful lakes in California, the City of Big Bear Lake will welcome spectators for the third time – this year for the fan-favorite, the Men’s Individual Time Trial stage, where racers will take off one at a time, riding against the clock for the best time of the day.
The course will begin in the heart of the Village in Big Bear Lake. The first three miles of the route wend through a residential section along the south shore of the lake. Taking the Stanfield Cutoff across the lake, the course will turn left, continuing on Hwy 38 to the town of Fawnskin. As the riders turn back toward the City of Big Bear Lake following essentially the same route back into town, they can expect large crowds in Fawnskin.
Heading right onto Big Bear Blvd. with just .6 miles left, the riders will then turn right onto Pine Knot Ave, through a narrow stone archway and onto a 1,000-foot jetty. For riders pushing their physical limits, the finish line will very close to the water’s edge! This is very flat and fast course. Don’t expect riders to score huge time gaps over their rivals to take a big lead into Stage 7.
The Amgen Tour of California event is an immense undertaking and we need YOUR help in order to have a successful and safe day of cycling racing. We are estimating a need for approximately 150 volunteers that day. You will have a front row seat to view some of the world’s top cyclists!
Volunteers will receive a special volunteer cooler bag complete with water, food, snacks and t-shirt on the day of the event as well as an invitation to the Volunteer Thank You Celebration at the conclusion of the day. Be a part of this exciting Big Bear Lake event!
