Mens Tour of CA 2017

Here's a short blog post with a few photos.
Curtis Corlew in Bicycle Land: Amgen Tour of California 2017 Ryer Island
MyLittlePony and I rode with Bikingshear out to Ryer Island for Stage one.
I kinda like my short videos.

The race was flat and fast. I am fat and slow. Riding along some very pretty Delta back roads and seeing the race with cccorlew and MyLittlePony (and three other friends) was a blast.

I couldn't make Stage 1, Mother's Day got the nod that day.
Here is a little glimpse of my Stage 2 experience on the Del Puerto Wall:

A fan died on the Hamilton stage Monday. On his way down after the race went by.

It's not clear from the article if the fire truck was across the centerline or not. I would certainly hope that wasn't the case.
