Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be host to the finish for Stage 4 of the 2016 Amgen Tour of California. Beginning in Moro Bay Stage 4 will feature cyclists making the 133.6 mile journey north up the Pacific Coast Highway encountering the iconic Bixby Bridge, Big Sur redwoods, and majestic coastline. Once riders turn east they will make their way through Monterey County's wine region down Carmel Valley Road where they will detour through the demanding Laureles Grade. After making their way over the Grade they will turn west on Highway 68 and turn into Laguna Seca to enter the race track via Turn 5. Riders will then complete a full lap of the famous racing circuit which includes the legendary Corkscrew that drops an equivalent of 5 ½ stories. For more tour details visit Amgen Tour of California.
