Wondering what it costs to host a stage of the Amgen Tour of California? The Auburn Journal today shared some of the details. The local committee pays for hotel rooms for the race officials. So far, that means 90 rooms at the Auburn Holiday Inn. They are also looking for approximately 300 volunteers to help on race day. And, someone needs to prepare 600 box lunches. Most of all, though, the committee needs money and is busily raising funds. They currently have $8000 in hand, including a loan of $5000 from the city.
