More From the Tour

So i just realized, that i never came back to share more of the tour. All of these are from the final stage in St. Louis. If you have not already heard, the circut had to be cut short due to severe flooding in forest park, but in the end it all worked out for the better, because i happen to get a prime shooting spot.

Before the race, this woman was trying to get the autograph of every person from Columbia and Garmin (which made her a perfect person to stand next to) she was really sweet, and ended up talking to Marco Pinotti in intalian, which was quite a shock for him.

Mark Cavendish talking to the same woman, she just seems to have a way with these professional cyclists.

These were the two who lead most of the stage. the rider on the left, Jeremy Powers, took the title for most aggressive rider for the day.

Mark Cavendish, supporting the green jersey, which he is now the current champion. He seemed to have a way of always being in my frame. I have at least two other photos, where he shot through a shot i was taking of someone else.

The whole of the peloton coming through the central west end.

Michael Rodgers and George Hincape of Team Columbia.

the celebration of Team Columbia, after winning the overall team title.

So i said i was only going to be posting photo's from St. Louis. I was wrong. This is one of the podium shots from St. Charles. That is Christian Vande Velde in Yellow, Mark Cavendish in Green, and Bernhard Eisel in Red. (Though i guess since you can not see the colors it probably does not matter to much)
Below the podium pic, is a progression shot of Mark Cavendish's sprint to the finish in St. Chuck (which he won). Though i doubt Cav needs anymore of an ego boost, i can see why many announcers have dared to call him "the fastest man in the world".

That is all for now. I have a few more which might be put up. We will see. . .
