Sky protecting the GC leader Bradley Wiggins

Stage 7 – Santa Clarita to Pasadena

Stage 7 started in Santa Clarita and finished with a three-mile loop in downtown Pasadena, passing the City Hall and Colorado Boulevard (of Rose Bowl Parade fame).

I thought that shooting some photos downtown would be cool because I’d get to see 3 laps of riding at least, and since it would most likely be a bunch sprint, I’d probably see the Cannondale, OPQS, and Giant-Shimano trains setting up their sprinters. However, due to the speed these guys were going, and sidewalks being packed with spectators, it was a challenge to capture some quality shots.

On the plus side, I ran into the beautiful “golden hour” Low that was featured in http://trackosaurusrex.com/golden-hour-low/. Patrick was kind enough to let me take a few shots, but check out the Tracko feature to see justice done to the bike.
