May 19, 2016 - Women's Road Race - Overall Stage Start
Stage 1 of the Amgen Breakaway From Heart Disease Women's Race Empowered by SRAM will complete a full clockwise 72-mile loop of Lake Tahoe, just like the first stage in 2015.
The high-altitude route will feature an early Queen of the Mountain climb at Emerald Bay on the West Shore before reaching North Lake Tahoe and the communities of Kings Beach and Incline Village. As the race traverses the hilly yet beautiful East Shore, teams will begin working to set up \ general classification contenders for the short but steep uphill finish to Heavenly Mountain Resort - a 1-mile climb at an approximately 7% average gradient.
Lake Tahoe is known for its natural wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts, so fans will likely be watching from boats, paddle boards and bikes throughout the loop.
Come See the Action!
