The complete details of this year's 800-mile Tour of California were released last week, showing off the details for the final three stages, set in the Los Angeles area. Stages 6 through 8 will race from Pasadena to Big Bear Lake [Update: this is now Palmdale to Big Bear], downtown L.A. and in the Santa Monica Mountains between Agoura Hills and Thousand Oaks, home to Amgen, the race's sponsor.

Last year's winner, Levi Leipheimer will participate as well as teammate Lance Armstrong. Attendance records are expected to be broken at Stage 7, which begins and ends in downtown, according to blogdowntown, which notes the route's accessibility to public transit.
