Tour of California to Pasadena

The day started with a quick ride up GMR. About a dozen riders congregated at the corner of Sierra Madre and GMR. The Merrill Lynch and Remax groups begun their training for the San Dimas Stage Race in March. The Glendora Police also had a section of the road closed for their own training. It was nice to have no motorcycles.

Met up with Jason of at the Tour of California. We tentatively scheduled a ride to the maintenance shed in late March or April. I did support his company's cause of rescue animals.

The spouse'sCanon EOS 5D Mark II really did a nice job capturing the peloton at speeds of 40 mph.

The break away or lead out group. George Hincapie was in the middle of the pack in the blue jersey (Breakaway from Cancer Most Courageous Jersey).

Team Astana leads the peloton. Lance Armstrong is in the yellow helmet and Levi Leipheimer is at the back of the Astana train.
