The 2009 Amgen Tour of California is slated to kick off on Saturday. This 9 day, Tour de France-style cycling road race that challenges the world’s top professional cycling teams to compete along a demanding, recently expanded, 750-mile course from Sacramento to Escondido.
Race fans can follow the tour, and the progress of their favorite riders and teams, with the race trackers built on using Flex, AIR, Flash Player, Flash video and LiveCycle technologies.

I’m planning to watch the race on the last day as they climb up Palomar Mountain.
Update: I did travel up Palomar Mountain, and got to watch them fly up the hill. I’ve posted my photos on my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=90964&id=581228763)
