    Yeah, I took about 200 pics throughout the day, but just haven't had the time to go through all of them. I'll try to get a few more up a little later.

    Thanks!

    Nice pictures and good eye. Perfect vantage point.

    Sorry I did not catch up with you guys on Saturday. Roman and I positioned ourselves in a different place for each of the last three laps. We finally ended up at the 500m marker just before the bunch sprint on the final lap.

    There were lots and lots of good vantage points around the Amgen Campus with few spectators. In some areas, there were more volunteers than fans! But that was alright with me. I actually saw myself in the background of one of the Cyclingnews pictures!

    I got some pics of my own but my digital camera is just plain aweful compared to yours.

    Touche!

    If I don't complain about the equipment, then the budget is never adjusted.

    That's great!!! :-)

    Here's a story that photographers often recite:

    Photographer get's onto an elevator with a journalist. Journalist says; "I saw your pictures yesterday, you must have a great camera."

    Photographer replies; "I read your story yesterday, you must have a great typewriter."

    Hard to see the gut with the mass of people (including me) knocking themselves over to get to him. It was almost surreal. One girl was freaking because she reached out and touched his shoulder. She was almost in tears. "I TOUCHED HIM, I TOUCHED HIM!"

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.
