Some of the world's best bike racers are a mere four hours away from Las Vegas by car in southern California this weekend for the Amgen Tour of California. The Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) -- the folks partnering with MGM Resorts Intl on the new $375M arena on the Strip -- created the Amgen Tour of California and runs this multi-stage pro race.
Unfortunately, one racer is going to remember this race because he began celebrating with one lap to go. Listen as The TV announcers are bummed for the dude. The TV broadcasters are so proper and polite: "One lap to go my friend. That is a shame."
