so, one of the benefits of my trips to california was that i was almost able to catch the san jose leg of the tour of california this week… i say almost because i missed the final sprint of the lead group by about 30 seconds. i left a meeting, looked up and saw the choppers that were filming the race very close and realized i had 6 blocks to go, so i took off running down the sidewalk and got there a little too late. i did get to see the podium ceremonies and some of the later riders coming in though.
oh, and i almost saw floyd landis too. while rushing from city hall to another meeting, i passed about 10 feet behind a booth where he was sitting, as i later found out. oh well, i’ll try to catch him in france.
the picture is of the yellow jersey holder levi leipheimer who went on the win the whole tour today. a prediction, if i may… levi leipheimer takes the tour de france.
