    2010 Amgen Tour of California: Stage 8: Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village/Agoura Hills Circuit Race

    The cities of Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills host the final 84-miles of the 2010 Amgen Tour of California. What starts as a beautiful rolling stage gets a bit challenging at Mulholland Highway.

    Long regarded as one of the most scenic climbs in southern California and a favorite haunt of motorcyclists, Mulholland Highway features steep climbs and numerous switchbacks, making it a great place for spectators. As the riders pass the Malibu Family Winery, they will start a dangerous and technical descent on Westlake Blvd. In less than an hour, the riders will be back at the finish line and bracing themselves for three more laps.

    Saw it and it sucked that George lost against the Garmin team. But then again, I was a bit glad that an American team won the last stage.
