As America’s biggest stage race, Amgen Tour of California attracts top riders from around the world for the seven-day Tour in mid-May, which also includes a Women’s WorldTour event.
The Versus network will now air live coverage of the Tour of California weekend stages in addition to its live weekday coverage.
Australian sprinter Aaron Kemps (Rock Racing) has withdrawn from the upcoming Amgen Tour of California after being treated for a hernia this week. Surgeons in his hometown of Bundaberg, Australia, operated on Kemps on Wednesday and he is expected to fully recover. That recovery, however, will not come in time for Kemps to toe the line at the California tour, which is scheduled to begin February 14.
