Lake Tahoe's first-ever involvement in the race as the official Overall Start is Sunday, May 15 and begins at 6,300 feet, the highest start elevation in the six-year history of the competition. Cyclists will begin at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on the California/Nevada border in South Lake Tahoe, ride a lap-and-a-half around Lake Tahoe, ascend Brockway Summit on Hwy 267 and turn onto Northstar Drive where they'll set-up for a high-speed blast to the finish line at Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort. Upon completion of Stage 1, the peloton will have conquered 119 miles and three mountains passes in approximately five hours with a total elevation gain of 5,500 feet.
