Photos Spare Cycles MythBusters

TMobile 2004 Photos

I got back all my photos from the T-Mobile race. Unfortunately, my first roll was ruined by stale film, but there's still more than enough photos to surf through. All the more reason for me to get a Digital Canon Rebel.

T-Mobile 2004 Photos (127 photos)

Note: none of the timestamps for the 35mm film photos are correct, though I did try to approximately place them so that the flow of the photos would be reasonable. If you're sharp enough to be able to tell the difference (hint: digital photos are blurry) then you can gauge the time correctly.

For reference, US Postal's number assignments:

12 Viatcheslav Ekimov (Rus)
13 Jose Azevedo (Por)
14 Michael Creed (USA)
15 Pavel Padrnos (Cze)
16 George Hincapie (USA)
17 Jose Rubiera (Spa)
18 Benjamin Noval (Spa)

Great photos. I didn't have time to run down to see the finish from the top of Taylor, but I was able to see Dionne pass McCartney to take the lead. Being right on the barricade at the top of the hill on the inside of the turn, I was close enough to reach out and touch the riders had a wanted to.

Joshua -- thanks for sending the links to your photos. Wish I was able to get photos as close as that :). Maybe next year I'll get a better lens. Next year my friends and I are also thinking of bringing bikes so we can checkout various prats of the course better.

Friends of mine on the Cal cycling team tried to bring bikes last year, but they said it was more trouble than it was worth because of the large crowds. There were some people who tried to bike up Taylor during the times when the rider's were elsewhere on the course, but the police were generally unhappy. I wish I could have moved around more and seen more of the course but that would have involved losing my spot.
