Tour of California up against Giro next year

The 2010 edition of the Tour of California will take place May 16-23 next year instead of its usual Februrary slot. Organizer Andrew Messick says

"We will be head-to-head with the Giro but frankly I don't think that will really affect us. The Giro is a great race, but very few cyclists who are serious about the Tour de France will also race the Giro."

While Messick says the date change was to save the race when "there was no appetite to stay a February race," veteran PdC members suspect the actual reason was to include the ToC in the VDS calendar.

Messick also promises a mountaintop finish for next year.
