Stage 7 of the 2016 AMGEN Tour of California will cover some of the same roads and KOM climbs as the popular annual Levi's GranFondo

Starting and ending in Santa Rosa in the heart of Sonoma County Wine County, one of the many fantastic viticulture hot beds the Tour of California race will pass through this year, the course will be rolling throughout with four Lexus King of the Mountain points along King Ridge Road, Pacific Coast Highway and Coleman Valley Road.

Now you can watch the best riders in the world compete for 4 KOM's and battle it out for the general classifications on that very same route. We're calling it the King Stage!

These country roads through redwoods, coastline and forests will keep the Tour of California peloton attentive with the feeling of riding on the edge of a continent. With a crucial time trial the day prior, this penultimate stage in the general classification competition will most likely feature aggressive racing and a small group vying on the downtown circuits of the flat finish - for both the men’s and women’s race.

Stage 7 of the AMGEN Tour of California, May 21st, will visit the same roads and climbs of the 8th annual Levi’s Gran Fondo
