Lodi couple a driving force behind launch, worldwide reach of Tour of California

May 14, 2019

On Sunday, the 14th Amgen Tour of California begins in Sacramento and will take riders on a seven-day, 773-mile tour of the state. Included is the start of Stage 3 on Tuesday in Stockton. Colarossi not only helped launch what has become the second-largest cycling event in the world behind only the Tour de France, but he met his wife of some 10 years, Alison (Liebich), who worked for the public relations firm hired by Amgen, through the race.
