Media Credentials

The media credential application for the 2015 Amgen Tour of California is now available online. Please complete the application to be considered for media credentials, photo credentials and/or a photo moto for the 2015 Amgen Tour of California May 10-17.

Please note that a completed media credential application does not guarantee access. Confirmations will be issued via e-mail.

Freelancers must submit an assignment letter issued by the news organization they are representing to in addition to filling out the online application form. Only freelancers with a valid letter of assignment will be considered for media credentials.

Credential applications will be reviewed and confirmations will be issued via email. Credentials will be distributed at the start and finish lines of each stage and CANNOT BE MAILED. Press room locations will be posted on this website in May.

All electronic footage is to be used exclusively as news coverage. Electronic footage gathered for commercial use must be sub-licensed through the race's organizers, AEG. Any electronic footage used in a commercial way without prior approval will be subject to penalties, enforced through legal or arbitration means.

Placement in media vans is at the discretion of race organizers and will be determined on-site.

Photo Motos: As photo motos are very limited, not all requests will be approved. A daily fee of $250 per moto, per day will be assessed, which includes a driver. All approved applicants will be required to provide credit card information on the first day of their ride, prior to using the moto. Charges will then be assessed throughout race week. Each photographer should be an experienced rider and will be required to provide his/her own helmet. To request access to a photo moto, please fill out the application below. We will do our best to accommodate all requests, and confirmations will be sent via email the week prior to the race.

If you have questions regarding the 2015 race please feel free to contact us via the media hotline and/or email address, and we will get back to you.
