AMGEN 2008 Tour of California

02-19-2008

AMGEN’s 2008 Tour of California came through Sacramento today. The rain arrived just before the cyclists reached the edge of town. They rode three two-mile laps on city streets before sprinting to the finish line for Stage 2 of the race.
This shot was taken with my camera clamped to the end of an extended painter’s pole, about 12′ above the ground. It’s like a miniature aerial view.

This shot was taken along L Street after the last turn. The finish line is about eight blocks away.
