Previous editions of the Tour of California have been decided in the individual time trials, although at only 24km, it may not be enough for the time triallists to gain back time on the pure climbers.

Once again, the time trial will be based around Solvang with the short but steep Ballard Canyon climb the only noticeable rise on the stage profile.

Friday February 20
