AMGEN Tour of California

So if you haven't heard by now, you're too late! The AMGEN Tour of California found their finish line here in old town Clovis. I have never been to any type of cycling event in my life and it was pretty intense around the last few corners. Michele and I found a spot 300 meters before the finish line to enjoy the show. All I can say is... those guys haul some serious ass on those straight away's!! I was kind of leaning through the railing a little to try and snap a few pictures of them coming down and they came soo quick I almost got anhialated. A few seconds later it was all over. I managed to recompose and get a few different shots before they were all at the finish line. Here's what I came up with. If you get a chance to go to something like this, do it! Very cool indeed.

Enjoy :)

You were one of those crazy people out there!!! People had to take the tour of California to get around that thing. Great pictures! The second photo is amazing. I like how you can see the expression on the cyclist's face.
