CALIFORNIA’S ALL-TIME STAGE LEADER AND TWO-TIME WORLD CHAMPION PETER SAGAN & REIGNING WOMEN’S WORLD TOUR CHAMPION MEGAN GUARNIER SET TO RETURN IN 2017

Peter Sagan, the 2015 overall Amgen Tour of California winner and record holder with 15 stage victories will headline an all-star peloton. "Racing in the Amgen Tour of California is always one of my top priorities every year. While spectacular to watch from a scenic standpoint, the route is consistently tough and challenging and one that brings out the best in all of the riders," said Sagan. "The incredible fans and all of the cities of California that we get to visit truly makes the Amgen Tour of California one of the best experiences of the year for me".

Returning to Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women’s Race Empowered with SRAM in 2017 is the returning champion Megan Guarnier who took the lead of the Women’s WorldTour in Sacramento and held on to become the inaugural Champion of the UCI Women’s WorldTour. "I feel so fortunate to have the opportunitiy to race at the highest level on American soil. The Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women’s Race Empowered with SRAM creates the most professional platform to showcase women’s racing alongside the long-running men’s race" said Guarnier. After winning Stage 1 in South Lake Tahoe in 2016, Guarnier will be eager to start her 2017 campaign with a similar result.
