Up The Road

Great Athletes Ride Trek at the 2012 Amgen Tour of California

Win a Madone, get the inside scoop on Trek teams, and see Jens Voigt's custom Madone

We’re headed to the 2012 Amgen Tour of California, and to say we’re stoked would be an understatement. Trek athletes tend to win here (2007, 2008, 2009, & 2011), and this year we’re proud to support two very exciting, and very different teams, who will be lighting up the roads of California in search of yellow jersey glory.

The seasoned professionals of RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK, led by Chris Horner, know exactly what they need to do to repeat last year’s win here. Their stacked roster is clearly built for one goal: the overall win. When the road points up, they’ll be ready to throw down.

The young guns of Axel Merckx’s Bontrager-LIVESTRONG team are here to prove themselves at their first world-class stage race. After tearing it up at the Tour of the Gila, there’s no doubt they’re on form. Watch out for these guys: they’re massively talented, they've work very hard to get here, and there''s no doubt they'll come come out guns blazing to (as they like to tweet) #PROVEIT.
