The race runs along the Pacific Coast. The undulating route takes in three KOM climbs, yet the ascents are far from demanding, so a sprint finish along Harbor Street in Morro Bay is the most likely outcome. The 2017 Tour of California saw its last finish in Morro Bay with Peter Sagan powering to victory.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 39 and 165 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
