We were able to keep our plans yesterday and went to the Solvang Time Trials. This was stage 6 of the Tour of California bike race. I have to admit that before going, I had no idea what a time trial even was. For those of you who are in the same position as me: It was a 15-mile course that the bikers were riding. They had staggered start times, with the best riders starting later in the day. These guys were amazing - Levi Leipheimer won with a time of 30 minutes and 47 seconds. That's fast. :)
We were able to find a pretty nice place to stand and watch the riders. We were 200 meters from the finish line, just after a turn. It was a great photo spot because they had to slow down to get around the turn.
Here's Lance Armstrong (the whole reason we even went). I'm really proud of this picture:
I may have led you astray with Sarah's picture of the day from yesterday. The caption says that she is a big fan of Lance Armstrong. Truthfully, this is what she was doing when he rode past:
