    Folsoms Historic District will be theplace cycling fans will want to be onMay 12 when the second stage ofthe Amgen Tour of California is held.

    Road racing opens May 11. The follow-

    ing day, Folsom will host a time trial with

    the starting and finishing lines only a short

    walk from each other.

  • The Historic District will be ground zero so to speak, Folsom Parks and Recre-

    ation Director Robert Goss said. The starting line will be by Snooks Candies on

    Sutter Street and the finish line will be on Leidesdorff near Wool Street. From Scott

    Street to Reading, its going to be a festival. The team bus parking will be there and

    its also where the riders will be warming up.

    Goss said when Folsom was a pass-through city for the Amgen Tour in 2011, the

    race drew about 3,000 spectators on a rainy, chilly day. This year, Goss said he

    expects the race the draw at least 10,000 fans.

    The time trial will begin around 1 p.m.

    and riders will leave from the starting line

    one at a time, one minute apart. The last 10

    riders to go, who will be the top-10 finishers

    from the previous days road race in Sacra-

    mento, will go out every two minutes.

    Starting near Snooks Candies, the riders

    will turn left on Riley St. and cross Rainbow

    Bridge before turning right on Folsom-

    Auburn Road for the uphill climb to Folsom

    Lake Crossing. After crossing the bridge,

    which gives riders a great view of Folsom

    Dam, the riders will proceed down E.

    Natoma Street before turning left on Green

    Valley Road. Riders will turn around near

    Browns Ravine and make their way back

    the way they came before pedaling over

    Lake Natoma Crossing and turning left on

    Leidesdorff and completing the 12.5-mile

    course at the finish line near Karens Bakery.

    Matt Colonius, general manager of Bicy-

    cle Planet in Folsom, is excited for the

    Amgen Tour to come to town.

    Its a phenomenal opportunity to show cycling here in Folsom, Colonius said.

    A lot of focus is on the race, but we have racing here in town because a lot of people

    enjoy riding. A lot has been done to develop cycling opportunities in this city and

    this will just build on it.

    Prior to the professional mens time trial, the pro women will hold their own time

    trial on the same course. An amateur time trial, featuring eight Folsom residents,

    will be held prior to the womens event.

    The Historic District will be ground zero so tospeak. ... The starting line will be by Snooks

    Candies on Sutter Street and the finish line willbe on Leidesdorff near Wool Street. From Scott

    Street to Reading, its going to be a festival. Robert Goss, Folsom Parks

    and Recreation Director
