Tour of California from Los Angeles Photos

I'm going to post a couple of photos from Los Angeles until someone comes along and posts the link to photobucket.

I'm so surprised by Cancellara's showing in LA.

Cancellara is coming off a month's rest and not on form yet since he is aiming for a peak during the Tour.

Rollin opted for standard bike. A lot of riders were just trying to get through the day either suffering from Stage 6 or preparing for Stage 8.

Last year at the Tour of Missouri some of the European teams didn't bother to send over their time trial bikes - too expensive. The rest of the Test Team riders had TT bikes so I thought maybe he had to have an on the fly bike change.

Did you see the Radio Shack roadies throwing t-shirts to the crowd? People would gladly knock you down for a lousy t-shirt.

I must have missed it. I was looking for a certain person who shall remain nameless.

I guess Tommy D was in a lot of pain from a fall before the TOC.
