The Amgen Tour of California makes it 4th appearance in Solvang as the quaint Danish town is host to this year’s 6 th Stage, the all important Time Trial. Volunteers are needed to fill various positions. To volunteer, register at the ATOC web site or email our local Director of Volunteers.
Volunteers are needed for about 400 positions, ranging from course marshal and hospitality host, to security, media relations and medical support.
The 2011 Amgen Tour of California is scheduled for May 15 to 22, with International cycling teams racing through 800 miles of scenic landscape from northern to southern California in the eight-day road race, modeled after the Tour de France.
“Volunteers are vital to making a race of this caliber a success,” said Bill Peterson, senior vice president and race director of AEG Sports, presenters of the race. “Without the support of the communities we travel through, the Amgen Tour of California wouldn’t be able to accommodate the more than 1.3 million fans and world-class roster of athletes that are part of the race.”
More than 4,000 volunteers in communities throughout the state participated in last year’s inaugural race, helping make the largest sporting event in the state of California a seamless and successful race from start to finish.
