Tomorrow, May 15, the 2011 edition of the Amgen Tour of California kicks off and it's sure to be a great eight days of racing.

The Tour of California is the largest cycling event in America. And because of that many of the great riders from around the world will be taking part. And with 18 teams in the race there are bound to be some some great rivalries.

Here are the 2011 teams:
The official site has nice video previews of each of the stages of the race. Unfortunately there wasn't an embed option so you'll have to go to the videos page of the Amgen Tour of California site.

Tomorrow's Stage One starts in South Lake Tahoe and heads to North Lake Tahoe-Northstar at Tahoe Resort.

Miles: 118.7 KM: 191.0
Start: Sun, May 15: South Lake Tahoe
Finish: North Lake Tahoe - Northstar at Tahoe Resort
Start Time: 10:30am Finish ETA: 3:12-3:36pm

The question is, what team and/or rider are you rooting for? Me, I'm still all about the argyle.
