Just back from walking down to the Rose Bowl to watch the cyclists complete the Amgen Tour of California.
My neighbor Elizabeth shot this photo of the main pack. Lance Armstrong is in the blue and gold with the yellow-and-black helmet, second from the left. He and his colleagues were riding to protect winner Levi Leipheimer, who’s on the inside of the pack and not visible. The turnout for the five-lap finale was large and lively—lots of cowbells, lots of cheers, lots of goodwill.
