Cool video, thanks for posting that. I was able to ride with Sean Kelly on a similar group ride back in the early 90's. Unfortunately that was before ride cams were easily available. Having that video is a cool souvenir.
The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.
Lucky Bast*¤#! I'd freak out if I had a chance to ride w/Lemond. Whats the story on this ride, was he(Contador) there to promote something? very cool my friend.

Great video man! I wonder if I know you through twitter... you look awfully familiar. It was cool to see Cullinan back mixing it up with the local TV news crews again, he used to be a Sports Anchor back in the day. Wish I could have made it down.
Just get in the saddle and ride.
Not me. I don't twitter.
wow , very intresting for me to watch that being a none american
At the end, right after you say the weather worked out... is that a rain drop or sweat that hits the lens?

It was rain. Seems to rain there the past few times the pros show up for the Tour of CA.
Thanks. I meant(when i asked if it costs something?) is there some sort of charity/or something you have to donate to, to ridre along? I mean, no disrespect to any pro cyclist who does it. But, a guy like Greg Lemond, just rides, and doesnt want someone to donate $$$ to a charity of his, for the right to ride with him? it's like that in golf sometimes, you have to pay amount X in order to play a round of golf(maybe for a charity or something), w/Phil Mickelson, or David Toms?
I mean is it totally on the up and up, or is there some sort of catch to it? Again, Not trying to disrespect, or offend someone, I seriously do not know how these things work.
I liked the "dfl" jersey...made me chuckle.

Nice Video! Sounds like you were breathing a little hard
Great Video I got to see just how smooth his cycling was like a liquid
For comparison purposes
