Tour of California 2014 Stage 7

I enjoyed a cool drink and empanadas at the cafe Malbec waiting for the Tour to arrive. The fencing was set up about 2:15 at the corner of Green and Catalina Streets in Pasadena. We chatted with a British couple who follow the tour closely, Loretta and Alan. The camera equipment was top of line as I listened to the clicks of photos captured as the tour whizzed past. We cheered the Lattern Rouge or the fellow riding in the very last place as he went by. The parade of support vehicles following the riders was impressive. The official with a red flag waved the riders to make the turn. Her race radio provided insights into the attacks and the catches by the peloton. It was nice to hear the unofficial winners announced as Peter Sagan, Thor Hushovd, Danny Van Poppel for Stage 7 of the Amgen Tour of California. Stage Results
Sir Bradly Wiggins in Yellow for Team Sky.
Mark Cavendish in the white jersey with Red and Blue strips for Team Omega Pharma-Lotto Quick Step.

Peter Sagan in the Green points Jersey for Team Canondale with Thor Hushovd for BMC in the red and blue jersey on the right.

John C. watched the Tour from the top of Linda Vista and the 210 freeway.
John received a gift from Sir Bradley. Pretty cool. Awesome memorabilia.
