The Amgen Tour of California has two very special VIP experiences related to the race, for which a limited number of tickets are now available:
* "Escondido Out Front" Team Presentation Gala - California Center for the Arts, Friday, May 10
Enjoy a three course gourmet dinner with wine pairing in the Concert Hall - the stage will actually be built out over the seats for a unique perspective in this beautiful venue. The pro teams competing in Sunday's race will be there for photo opps, and silent auction items include a ride-along in a VIP car with the peloton. I had the opportunity to sample the menu and I can assure you, you won't be disappointed!
* Escondido VIP Hospitality Tent - At the race start/finish line on Grand Ave in Downtown Escondido, Sunday, May 12
Only 75 tickets are available for this exclusive front row seat to the race. Mingle in style and enjoy all-inclusive food and beverages (including beer and wine) from 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Flat screen TVs inside the tent will broadcast the race live, plus you'll be able to see the start/finish and announcers' stage right from the tent's patio.
These are one-of-a-kind opportunities, especially for cycling fans. Or why not treat your mom to a unique Mother's Day gift? Tickets and more information are online at www.Amgen2013Escondido.com.
