AMGEN bike race

The AMGEN tour of California passed right by our street on Friday. We didn't have school because the road closures made going anywhere a problem. Even though Lance Armstrong had to drop out we decided to walk down the road and watch the race. Where we were watching there was no one there and the kids wanted to walk up the road where all the people and screaming was going on. We walked up there and ate candy while we were waiting.


This is the front runners. There were three bikers in front all together.





Then after that there were packs of bikers all together. I guess they use the wind from each other to help them ride faster so they stay in packs. After waiting for a long time the final group came through going pretty slow. It was considered a pretty difficult part of the race and they still had about 25 miles to go to the finish. I enjoyed watching the bike race but think I probably won't attend another race unless they are in my backyard again.
