Amgen Tour of California

Date: Tuesday, May 14 2019

The Amgen Tour of California is a Tour de France-style cycling road race created and presented by AEG.  The race features 7 stages running from Sacramento down to Southern California. Stockton will be the starting point of Stage 3.

We're thrilled to announce that Amgen Tour of California is returning to Stockton for the second year in a row! On Tuesday, May 14, Downtown Stockton will serve as the start location for Stage 3 of the race as riders make their way South through the State of California.

Festivities will begin next to the Stockton Arena with a lifestyle festival. The festival will feature an opportunity to meet with the cyclists, participate in various activities, see race sponsors’ booths and other entertainment. Then watch as the cyclists begin their race through the streets of Stockton on their way to Morgan Hill!

Free of charge to watch!

Volunteer sign ups are now closed! We are full on volunteers. Thanks for your help!

For event sponsorship opportunities please contact the Visit Stockton Offices at (209) 938-1556 or email Tim Pasisz at

Inside Scoop: Riders will be making a loop in Downtown Stockton before heading out of town so there will be extra opportunities for photos and social media videos following the start.

  • Race Starts at 10:00 AM 


  • General spectator parking will be in the North Parking lot, which is located in front of the Stockton Ports Ballpark, or the parking lot adjacent to the old EDD Building.
