for the third year running i photographed the tour of california three miles up sierra road.

leading the pack were Robert Gesink of rabobank and levi leipheimer of team astana. gesink won the stage and leipheimer, who won the race last year and placed third in the tour de france, took the race lead.

Nice series - I like the commentary, adds quite a bit to the images... What's with the antler guy?

Great shots. Love the commentary. I've just gotten seriously into Road Cycling in the last six months so great to see the images of the big names and nice to see that they suffer just like anyone else on the hills.

thanx guys! i talked to the antler guy and you have to remember the term fan is derived from fanatic!

i'm sure if he isn't on you tube he will be soon because he will be with the race all the way to pasadena.

this guy was an animal. you'll note he was wearing sidis with MTB cleats. you could hear the clack of metal like a steel shod clydesdale as he trotted up and down the hill, never busting a sweat.

the antlered one was warming up before the riders arrived and when they did he ran along with each lone rider, each grupetto offering words of encouragement and water.

all hail antler man!

Wow! Love every one of them!

Zabriskie's mustache so far is the highlight of the tour. :)
