Interesting you should ask!  :-) 

It has a number of  API's,  there is even a tool called "gcalcli" :
"gcal cli"  for use from the command line.  that might be best
suited for a shell scipt interface.  There are also tools in
JavaScript and Python. (and Java and .NEt and PHP) 

gcalcli is written in python.

However, I don't know of a specific "sync" call. It may or may
not exist. haven't dug in deeply enough yet. 

gcalcli uses the python Gdata tools which you can look at more
closely here::
