There is no doubt that the Modesto community rallies around the Amgen Tour of California - the thousands of screaming spectators lining the Modesto streets are a visible side of the commitment; but it’s the behind-the-scenes things are even more amazing. Modesto businesses have a generous spirit when it comes to raising money for great community events, and the Amgen Tour of California is no exception. Below is a chart depicting the estimated funds the Modesto LOC will be able to secure to produce an exceptional stage of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California as well as a chart showing how the LOC expects to expend those funds based on previous experience.

It is important to note that Modesto sees an estimated $6 return for every $1 invested in the Amgen Tour of California – this is a conservative estimate, but it represents a significant economic impact to our community and the surrounding area. This positive impact is not lost on the Modest LOC and the community as a whole, we have been grateful for not only the economic impact the Amgen Tour of California provides our community, but also the tremendous positive media exposure to not just California and the nation, but to the world!
