The Tour of California whizzed by our front door yesterday. Well, not quite our front door--if they did that, they would have had to go over speed bumps. But they were on Folsom Boulevard, half a block away.
This was the first stage, a mostly downhill run from Nevada City to the Capital. A perfect ride for a sprint finish, and the entire peleton was together, moving a lot faster than traffic on Folsom usually goes. Somewhere in there are such luminaries as Lance Armstrong, Tom Boonen, and Levi Leipheimer. Although some photons undoubtedly bounced off of them and into my eyeballs, I can't claim to have seen them here.
