Stage 2 - South Pasadena to Santa ClaritaStage Presented By
Americans Ben King and Evan Huffman Claim First and Second on Day 2
Holding off the world's top sprinters for the win
May 16, 2016 - Stage 2
Stage 2 will begin in new host city South Pasadena, known for its historic homes, charming tree-lined streets and proximity to Rose Bowl Stadium.
Despite being a sprinter's finish, the profile on the way to Santa Clarita is filled with long gradual climbs that could take a toll on the sprinters' legs. Riders will face several Lexus King of the Mountain points in the Angeles National Forest including Highway 2, Big Tujunga and Little Tujunga Canyon. Throughout the route, riders will see numerous historic California bridges and tunnels.
Santa Clarita, host to the most stages in race history (12), will welcome the riders for a wide, flat finish in downtown Newhall.
