Where to Watch Saturday's Tour of California Time Trial?
2009 Amgen Tour of California champion Levi Leipheimer was in 3rd place going into today's Stage 6.
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — A Thursday crash forced Lance Armstrong to withdraw from the 2010 Amgen Tour of California, but the rest of the 115 cyclist field will make its way through Downtown on Saturday in what promises to be quite the spectacle.
The time trial will take riders 21 miles, around two loops of a course that starts at L.A. Live, runs south to the Coliseum and then travels north around City Hall before returning.
The pro riders will start hitting the course at 1pm. Because Saturday is an individual time trial, expect to see a steady stream of one rider at a time instead of a massive peloton. Action should wrap up around 4:15pm.
Once in the neighborhood, though, you've got to figure out just where to watch. Who better than Downtowners to share their tips on the best spots along the route?
Got a plan to set up camp next to Pershing Square? Headed to the start/finish line at L.A. Live? Planning to sit outside the new Police Administration Building and watch riders pass City Hall?
Let's hear some viewing advice...
