The official start list for the 2014 Amgen Tour of California has been released. The riders will line up in Sacramento for eight days of racing over May 11-18.

There are seven British riders in the race, with Bradley Wiggins (Sky) putting in a serious bid for the overall classification and Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) in the hunt for stage wins.

Peter Stetina (BMC Racing) wears the number one bib after last year’s victor, Tejay van Garderen, elected to miss the race in order to prepare for the Tour de France in Europe.
