So THANKFUL that Sonora didn't make the cut!!!! It's a boon for Sonora downtown merchants and we don't have to waste a colossal amount of $$$$ on something that most people in this county are NOT interested in!!!! Now, our supervisors can focus on putting money where it's needed. A blessing indeed!!!
Best news! Couldn't be happier to not have them in the county!
This was a waste of time/resources.
One of the more stupid things the city of Sonora participated in. Glad it is not returning.
So happy it's not happening this year. I can't stand this race and the liberal people it attracts!
I am so happy its not any where near by again. It was such a joke last year.
The Amgen tour scammed our downtown merchants. Promised no outside food vedors, local businesses should prepare for a huge morning rush. What happened? A Starbucks tent was setup across the street from Sonora Joe's and Carl's Jr puts one up right up the street. There was little to no economic benefit to our town. Good bye, good riddance.
So funny. I got chastised last year when I said I didn't care at all about this. Now that it's not going to be here this year it's cool not to care about it. Sheep LOL
Glad its not coming back. Who needs a bunch of hard core bikers tearing up our town and scaring the beejeeezus out of the little kids and old ladies :-) Keep em down in Oakland !!!!!
Not to mention all the bicyclists "practicing" before and after the race who think "share the road" means they get to ride in the middle of it in a 45 zone and block traffic.
I too am glad it's not returning.
After hearing the "fail" stories from the downtown merchants, I hope this event continues to avoid Sonora. Let them run down 99 or I-5.
Anyway these comments can be forward to the main office of Amgen to make sure it never comes back? For once maybe the voice of the people could be heard.
