ToC TT

Gina and I hung out on the Ballard Canyon hill for the Tour of California TT today. The weather was crisp and windy, with beautiful views of a fresh snow dusting on Figueroa Mountain. Here's the view from the hill...
I've got a couple hundred pictures, but for now let's just see a few notables and the top gc contenders...

Cancellara...


Horner...


Jens...
Levi...

And another Levi...

nice pics.
Mike and I watched the TT in San Jose last year. When Levi didn't win, he gave a whiny speech about how he's a little guy, a climber, and how can you expect him to win a TT when it was so windy out?

I'm glad the winds subsided for him this year! I assume you watched the stage from SB as well?

Thanks alicat! I was amazed that Levi went so fast this year because it *was* windy in Solvang! We were all thinking it would give Jens an advantage, and maybe Cancellara too, but Levi still beat them!

Sadly, we had to leave SB for a soccer tournament and missed that stage.
