Well, the stage winners have been a bit harder to predict than usual. Two Sagans, Chicchi upsetting Cav, and now Panzer Wagon Tony Martin. Liquigas and HTC have plenty to be thrilled with this ToC. Moving the race to May really has shaken up the typical storyline, resulted in some interesting new stages, and given us a lot of drama -- even if it hasn't changed the weather much. Levi will probably try to go out guns ablazing, but HTC has been incredibly impressive. I can't believe Martin pulled off a performance like today after such a hard day yesterday bringing back the breaks.
I shot "boring" today. The only chance I had to do something interesting was for Cancellara, who started very early in the day. Two days on moto has given me plenty of spread material, so I had to start shooting some tight-in rider portraits to given the magazine more to work with.
Its been fun to meet some readers on this trip. Thanks to Pat, Manny, Jarrett, and others (and apologies for any name misspellings) for saying hi. Hope the photos this time around keep you reading. I'll do a "best of" gallery when I get back, but for now I have to make sure I have time to sleep.
