The Amgen Tour in Modesto, California
This post is just a little off my usual photos... The reason? The Amgen Tour of California just finished in Modesto, California (February 17, 2009 a little after 4 P.M.) and I just wanted to share the moment with others. I was on the East side of Sycamore Ave. at Coldwell (just down from Enslen School). The race circled in front of the school twice. The first time throught I took still shots, however, for the final sprint to the finish in Downtown Modesto, I decided to take short segments of video. These biker were within inches of where I stood on the turn and when they emerged in mass - well, just click on the video and see what I mean. Even with the heavy rains we've been having this was well worth being wet. The streets were lined with thousands of spectators.... Enjoy.
Here is one of the many still shots I took.
