I think the 2nd shot should be called, "Tight Pants!"

Well...I mean look, even the muscles in his arm are hugongous. And he's wearing some of my favorite colors. What a cute outfit, but where did his bicycle hat (as Tira would say) go? He was embarrassed because it didn't match the others?

Nice shots! I was wondering if you went to that; I saw a bit on TV. Hey, did you see the guy running with antlers on? Someone should photograph the crazy fans, LOL.

I was just thinking how all those men are infertile b/c of those TIGHT PANTS!!!

Speaking of... someone we know wears tight pants... someone that rides with you guys... and i'm not talking about my hubby... i'm talking about American Eagle. :) Ewwww! I can't even look at him when they are gearing up for a ride. haha! (sorry missi!)

I've never ridden with Mark when he's wearing spandex...

Fair warning Mark... you'll never hear the end of it if I see it

The antler guy was the best. The videographer had that guy framed perfectly.

We were at the finish line when that goon filled the portable big screen. The crowd roared with laughter.

Good times... We'll be there again next year.

Great meeting you both at the ToC and glad to see you made it to the finish, although I take it this was AFTER the finish! Great pics though and no, just because we wear spandex, doesn't mean we are not able to sprout out a kid or three! :) Pic #2 has rider #21 George Hincapie, #157 Glen Chadwick, #35 Trent Lowe, OUCH is Rory Sutherland and that's all I can name off the top of my head. Pic #3 is an AWESOME shot of Andy Schleck. Mark my words, he'll be a TOUR de FRANCE winner in the next three years. Keep that photo and say "I knew him when..."! Great kid, met him twice. I'd love a copy of the originals of #2 & #3!!!

We made it to the finish with an hour to spair. We skipped cole grade.

The shots of the finish line sucked so... we dumped those shots. It was way to buisy to get a decent/clear shot with out media credentials. Get out blog and photos into the hands of the guy or gal who passes out credentials and we'll get you some blown up 8x10 prints. Fair?

Sean, I wish I had some cred and get you in contact with the right folks.... Sorry I can't help there, but I think it's fairly easy, it seems like anyone can get some sort of credintials. It is tough getting good shots at the finish, but you'll figure it out if you go back next year. I'd suggest finding some of the local amateur races and doing some shots there to get practice. And cyclists will pay for pics of themselves, so it could be beneficial. Ciao guys!
