Tour of Calif. Thousand Oaks pix- Stage 6
Just returned from my stint as a volunteer. After spending time at the Expo, I watched the race on the giant screen TV they had for the crowd. It was great to see the pros on our local roads!
They finished the stage with 3 laps around Amgen. I staked out a spot at one of the turns. These guys fly! I was amazed that as the peloton went by it sent out enough breeze to pull my cap right off my head. Each lap someone else was in the lead.
Once the race finished, I was also suprised to see how approachable the racers were, even handing someone one of their water bottles. I asked one of the (not winning) team members how it was out there and he replied "Man, I was nothing but a spectator on this one!"
Here are the pix.
