2011 Amgen Tour of California: Stage One Cancelled

Looks like the race will not start today after all.

Stage one of the Amgen Tour of California was set to originally kickoff at 10:30 this morning.  However, inclement weather conditions caused tour officials to postpone the race for a 1:15 pm start.  Now, the race is officially postponed until tomorrow due to snowfall and poor riding conditions in the Sierra.

Some race participants have already taken to Twitter to send messages about the delay, like three-time Tour of California winner Levi Leipheimer:

We the riders are disappointed about not racing for the fans but we all agreed it was too risky in the ever changing weather. Thank you to AEG and Medalist for supporting this decision. We all hope the fans understand.

California cycling fans hope that weather won't be a problem tomorrow.  Stage 2 is set to start Monday at 10:30 am at Squaw Valley and end in Sacramento at 3 pm.
