Stage 6: Santa Barbara to Santa Clarita

My boys & I were at the finish of today's Stage 6 in Santa Clarita. What an event!! Lotsa stuff to do and see!! All the best pics I took can be found on my photo gallery.

Of course, don't forget the actual race...

Before the race got there, there was a BMX demonstration:


After the sprint, Tom Boonen and other riders came back to the line for interviews and such:


Mark Cavendish of Team High Road:


Bob Roll being out-hustled for the interview???


The 6-man break starts their 3 laps:


Team QuickStep ties to bring them back to set-up Tom Boonen for the win:


A bunch of Rock Racing riders crashed. Here's Super-Mario clawing his way back:

Fyi, that's Mark Cavendish of High Road (who was penalized out of the top spot).

Thanks for sharing the photos, Mark!

Ya know, I thought it looked like Cavendish, and had labeled all my pics as such, then I got an e-mail from ATOC saying Pagliarini won, so I changed them and didn't check. Uh-oh. I'll fix.

Nice, Ron! The first pic...goodness, what amazing legs. With all joking aside, I'm just in awe of these men and their physiques. Cycling DOES do a body good!

Yeah, Brandy, you should really investigate getting a job as a cycling sports commentator! You'd actually know what you were talking about, and you look great! And you'd get to interview everyone!

It all depends on your voice, though.... you don't have a voice like Marge Simpson, do you?

I saw it live on the net, and still can't get enough. I knew I could depend on the bf photographer/cyclists to share their 'on the scene' pics! AWESOME!!
