Tour of California 2006

February 25th, 2006

For weeks we’ve felt like the kid in Breaking Away – “The Italians are Coming! The Italians are coming!” Actually, the best in world are coming. The Amgen Tour of California is a week long stage race from San Francisco to Redondo Beach. Several big European teams have come to enjoy the fine California weather with a few domestic teams. We went to Santa Rosa for the finish of Stage One, but the big day for us was Stage Two. Stage Two included Sierra Road, a brutal 10% grade (with a few sections even steeper) for 3.6 miles. Thom did it in 43 minutes with 10 pounds of camera gear on the bike. The pros did it in about 15 minutes.

  • The Specialized Angel blows kisses at the KOM on Sierra Road.
  • Mark Walters (Navigators) and Fabian Cancellara (CSC)  look on as Stuart O'Grady (CSC) looks back in disbelief at the Angel of the tour.
