“When people around the world think of getting away, they think of Santa Barbara County. Visitors can start the day with a sunrise ride through the oak-dotted hills of Santa Ynez and finish at sunset with a glass of wine on a Santa Barbara beach…County Supervisor Janet Wolf said, ‘Santa Barbara County is excited to host Stage 3 and cheer on the racers as they make the iconic Gibraltar Road climb and cross the finish line at La Cumbre Peak. The Tour of California is one of the most important races in the UCI America Tour, and it is an honor for Santa Barbara County to host one of the most rigorous stages of the race.'”
