Amgen signs up for another Tour of California. Drugs work!

Amgen on board for another Tour of California. Yeah!

Yes, these cancer drugs are strong and the effects are long lasting.

Pharmaceutical giant Amgen announced they will continue as the main sponsor and sugar daddy for the Tour of California for 2012.

“We are happy and pleased to confirm that Amgen will remain as the title sponsor of the 2012 race,” AEG vice president Kristin Bachochin toldĀ Cyclingnews today.

Amgen has partnered with the race since the first edition and has used the high profile stage race to promote cancer advocacy including the Breakaway from Cancer — which raised awareness of resources for cancer patients.

For all fans for the Tour of Cali, this is terrific news. Amgen, we salute you. The guy with the pacifier and cigar couldn’t be happier.
