A Day at the Races

Palo Alto a quaint college town hosted the Prologue of the 2008 Amgen Tour of California. The stately homes elegantly graced the road with their sweeping roofs and immaculate yards as we rode into a bustling downtown area.

It was a flat fast 2.1 mile course with two corners. I was stationed at the second corner with TBV, Mrs. TBV and Bill. The professionals were at their "slowest" when taking the corner, and they were up close and personal as we could see their faces for that one or two seconds: grimacing, tongues hanging out, or solid and concentrated.

The pictures will be here Monday. I have to admit that even with multiple snap mode many riders got cut off. Yes they were that fast!

Its 10:00 pm and sleep a really good nights sleep is calling my name. TBV(s) we got home safe and thank you kindly for the conversation.
