And Now Some Y Chromosomes

.
Tour de Grove 5

A few scenes from the pro-level men's race at the Tour de Grove. Above, the leaders jockey back and forth for top position. First below, the pack whizzes by me while I sit on the curb with a wide angle lens. I took yesterday's portraits moments before.

Ridiculously long work day on Monday. I'll come visit everyone as soon as I can.

Any shots with bikes in them are good shots!

The gritting expression on the face of the rider on the left of your top photo is priceless.

Love your two days of bicycle photos. Excellent. Getting us in the mood, over here, for the Tour de France. Cycling has to be one of the hardest sports.

Should have said three days ...

So different from the way I ride my bicycle!

Both the top and the bottom photo clearly demonstrates the amount of energy required to bike and compete; check the leg muscles and facial expressions.

The tense expression of the rider on the left in the first photo is what first drew my eye. I hope he managed to pull ahead.
