Scott Zwizanski Kelly Benefit Strategies rides down 11th street during Stage 7 of the Tour of California.

Downtown Los Angeles got its first taste of professional cycling in 2010, as the Amgen Tour of California brought a time trial stage to the central city. After a year away, the tour will return in 2012, ending the race's final stage at L.A. Live on May 20.

That makes sense: AEG, the developer of the entertainment complex, also owns and operates the eight-stage race.

Detailed routes for the 2012 stages won't be released until closer to the race date. 2010's Time Trial route was released three months before that race.

The race will start in Santa Rosa on May 13, 2012. Full route information can be found on the Tour of California website.
