Monday evening

A Sunday in Pasadena with a few thousand cycling fans deserves more than one entry. Standing around prior to the race arrival one can see that the streets are dry, the sky overcast and the crowd patiently waiting for Stage 7 finish of the 2008 Amgen Tour of California.

I am standing a breath away from the finish line.

When the peloton arrives so does the rain.

As they loop around the droplets get bigger.

As they speed by this is what the eye sees:

A perfect Sunday indeed. Standing in the rain for an hour watching cyclists.
