Want to get involved in
Anyone who wishes to volunteer for an opportunity to participate in the sixth-annual cycling race can sign-up online for positions including volunteer course marshals, security, and volunteer check-in. Simply go online to www.modestogov.com/amgen and click on “Volunteer” under the “Get Involved” tab.
The majority of volunteers are needed as volunteer course marshals, providing support for the 75 professional course marshals that travel with the tour and support the local law enforcement authorities in each host city. Course marshal volunteers have an opportunity to be on the race route, close the cyclists, with responsibility for monitoring pedestrian traffic, barricades and road closures.
