ToC 2008, Sierra Road.........

i was a kilometer from the top in my usual spot and this is the order that they rolled by me. the motocycles really made it tough to get a good shot of levi and robobank rider robert gesink..........

As always - amazing pics.

Gesink is otherwordly tiny...I was amazed he held Levi's wheel for those last few miles into town.

Great work Ed. Are you using any stabilizing mount? Clarity is great as is the saturation. Do you edit in PS3?

Dave Z. looks like a cross between a young Ed Pavelka (Bicycling Magazine back in the day) and Les Claypool (from Primus) in that shot....

big george hincapie's face gives nothing away as he stamps out the pace. if you don't think george is suffering look at the faces of jens voigt and the CA rider who struggle to stay with him............

hincapie was off the front but was caught near the base of the sierra road climb.....

Maybe he thought the arm warmers were bandages? I haven't heard anything about Horner going down but it's possible.

Excellent photography. Do you plan on following the rest of the race?

Ed,

Those are amazing, but that's hardly surprising.

I'm happy to see that Dave Z has been taking my advice on facial hair.

Sweet pics of Hincapie, he is really making those two hurt.

I keep on looking and there is not a single thing I like about the High Road kit, not sure who their helmet sponsor is but those helmets are hideous. . . . . . . .makes him look like a large penis!!!!!!
