San Jose will be a host city on Wed., May 19, 2010 for the record-setting Amgen Tour of California professional cycling road race. The announcement was made this morning via a Twitter exchange that took place shortly before 9 a.m. PT between Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and some of America’s most accomplished cyclists, including Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, Dave Zabriskie and George Hincapie. This marked the first time an event of this stature has ever been announced via Twitter.
