i can't believe this is the fourth year i've been able to check out the amgen tour of california race in person (year 1, year 2, year 3). this year the race included a stage which traveled from claremont to the top of mt. baldy, so i joined some friends and made the trip out there. since so much else happened this weekend, i thought i'd give you another photo collage of our day.
clockwise starting in the upper left: race day starting line, meeting some of the pro's, photographing the race (more photos to come soon), and braving the crowds in claremont.
the race concludes tomorrow in thousand oaks with chris horner (pictured above in the gold jersey) of team radio shack hoping to hang on to his overall lead for the win.
