2009 Amgen Tour of California Start

This weekend had a chance to attend the 2009 Amgen Tour of California Stage 7 Start in Santa Clarita, CA. This was the third year that the Tour of California rolled into Santa Clarita. The previous years Santa Clarita hosted a finish for the Tour of California. Here are some photos from last year: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lastminuteracer/sets/72157603983732887/ However a start is almost better because it gives fans the opportunity to see and meet the riders up close. This year all the buzz was Lance Armstrong’s return to cycling. Here are some of my favorite photos from this years start:
