Tour of California

Today we went downtown to check out the Tour of California. It's a professional cycle race throughout the state. Today they had the prologue in Sacramento which is time trials, so you get to see each of the riders separately on a set 2.4 mile course. All the top cyclists were here including Lance Armstrong (his first race since coming out of retirement), Levi Leipheimer, Fabian Cancellara, and Floyd Landis.

Before it started we walked around and found the Bissel team warming up.

This is Fabian Cancellara. He is the current gold medalist and won the prologue in 4:32.

I was so excited to see Lance Armstrong! He's riding so fast he's a little blurry! You can see all the people in the background trying to get pictures.
