Ditto. I had a great time at the start. Except for a handful of preeminent riders, most were totally accessible during their warm up right before the start. No security and no pretense. I saw many signing autographs, posing for photos, and just chatting with spectators, being very approachable.
Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
