If you are a bicycle enthusiast, you already know that the AMGEN Tour of California is our Nation's largest cycling race. This race lures professional cyclists from all over the world, many that also compete in the Tour de France.
This years AMGEN tour of California is in full swing. Stage One was from Nevada City to Sacramento. Stage Two, which was yesterday, started in Davis and ended in Santa Rosa. Immediately after the race, Lance Armstrong tweeted "Does it always rain here?"
The race had taken place in February in previous years. This year, the race was scheduled in May in hopes of better weather. Guess what? We had an unusual (but much needed) downpour just as the racers reached downtown Santa Rosa.
So no, Lance Armstrong, it doesn't always rain in Sonoma County. But evidently it likes to rain when you come to visit!
