Tour of California - WE ARE VIP'S!!!
Can I hear a huge "WOOOOOO HOOOOOO!?" The 4th Tour of California is in already heading down the coast right toward Escondido for the final stage, the highest mountain stage of the history of the Tour, and US IN THE VIP TENT AT THE FINISH LINE!!! Fully catered, open bar, live feed of the race on a big screen TV... I still can't believe we are going to be there! For those of you that follow professional cycling, you know what an INCREDIBLE race this is... first race for Lance Armstrong since coming out of retirement, Floyd Landis' first race after his 2-year suspension, Tyler Hamilton is back, team Astana is ROCKING (can't wait to see them race in France in July!)... The field racing here in California is soooooo strong... pretty much all the big names and teams are HERE!!! It has been a great race so far... weather, not so good... crashes... yep even Lance and Levi have gone down already... attacks... sprint finishes... and Levi in yellow!!!
The final stage will pass right by our house and although we won't be there with our neighbors to cheer on the riders, we have several friends taking pictures of the live race while we party like rock stars at the finish line! Hope you have a GREAT day!!!!
