Solvang Individual Time Trial (Friday, May 20, 2011)
Start Location: Intersection of Mission Dr. (Hwy. 246) and 1st Street (at Solvang Park)
Finish Location: Copenhagen Drive and 1st Street
After a hiatus in 2010, the Amgen Tour of California’s individual time trial returns to Solvang, the charming Danish-American village celebrating its 100th anniversary this year--that plays host annually to some of the Pro Tour teams for training camps, as well as some of the largest cycling events in the U.S. With the start and finish lines located only one block apart, Stage 6 will be an ideal location for spectators to view the individual time trial stage known as the “race of truth” where each cyclist races against the clock on a closed course. The route will highlight the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, windingthrough quaint towns, vineyards, and farms, and one short but steep climb up Ballard Canyon. This year's short (15 mile/24 km), flat and fast time trial will create a challenging test for the riders and is expected to be a decisive day of the race. As in the past, the Solvang time trial will separate the true contenders for the golden jersey from the rest of the field.
