rounding the rose bowl


here's the peloton during one of their final laps of saturday's stage 7 race in pasadena. the amgen tour of california was won by levi leipheimer who you can see in this picture riding with his teammates. he's one of the last riders at the front with the blue helmets, riding next to lance armstrong (in the yellow helmet).

You should've taken your friend Tim (of Tim & Deb showbiz fame) with you. He needs to get outta house.

HA! That's Tim at the right side of the photo with his fist raised in the air. He gets out enough, don't worry about him.

Oh, I love this one. I was just commenting to Jon about how much I like this shot because of the spectator with his fist in the air -- and now I find out it's your friend!

Great capture of the spirit of the race, Ben. I'm so happy to see these shots from the tour.

We had a great time. Did you and Jon end up going down to watch at all?
