Some of the other fastest things (D/U WARNING)

On two wheels!!!

This past weekend was the start of the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race. Jeff and I were not going miss this! Rain, sleet, wind, hail .................. none of it was going to keep us away nor was it going to keep me from taking photos. Plastic bags were put in the camera bag - just in case!

Saturday was the prologue aka time trials! If these boys look like they are in pain it's because they are. Throwing down power to achieve almost 60 kph to have the fastest time over a 2.4 miles track. The fastest guys did this in 4:32!! That's movin!













The man himself Lance Armstrong



Floyd Landis


Even though the clouds threatened the rain held of. The time trials ended and within less then a minute the rain came. Whew.


I did take photos of the start of Stage 1 on 2/15 in Davis but have become very impatient with photobucket and the long a$$ time it was taking for photos upload tonight. But it was a soggy - windy time in Davis but very amazing to see 180 riders go flying by.

Nice.

I have been watching the tour in hopes of seeing you and Jeff in there taking pictures, but no such luck. I have a lot of respect for cyclists, and I enjoy the Tour de France, and watch it when I can.

Time to bring back a thread from the dead! I hadn't bothered to look at the date of this thread until I saw Lance in his Astana gear. That's when I knew this was kinda old. lol.

Anyway, that third bike from the top looks crazy! I bet that thing costs more than most motorcycles out there!
