Gilberto Simoni

This was the first time I ever saw Simoni in person. It's really cool to see some of these guys that I watch in the grand tours come across the pond to race.

Glad to see the continental teams doing so well at the TDG this year. Jittery Joe's still has the best uniforms and teams cars too!

Let's take a break from racing and enjoy some wonderful art for a post.

Shot with a Panasonic FZ30, which is an excellent superzoom point and shooter - it's 12x optical zoom and optical image stabilization are awesome. It's been updated to the FZ50, which is 10.1 megapixels versus the 8 MP of the FZ30.

I caught another good shot of Phil this year on Nick-a-Jack. Although, he wasn't quite panting as hard as he was last year.

The Face of Victory

The Face of Victory, originally uploaded by hawridger.

Here's another shot of Levi on the ITT. Yes, he won the stage.

This is probably my favorite shot that I've found from what I took on Stage 4 and 5 so far. Granted, I took more than 1300 shots and have yet to sort through them all.

I went down to Centennial Olympic Park a little earlier today and scoped out the setup for tomorrow. This really is an excellent venue for a stage of the Tour de Georgia. I'm a little surprised about the lack of local promotion though. I've been all over Atlanta today and haven't seen the first hint of TDG marketing. You'd think for a race that is struggling to stay alive, it would promote this great venue IN THE VENUE. I guess we'll see what the crowd looks like tomorrow.

By the way, I'm pulling for George to take the stage. ; )

Shot with a Canon Rebel XT and Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX DG HSM; 1/500s @ f/3.2 and ISO 100. 88mm focal length.

Levi on Nick-a-Jack

Levi on Nick-a-Jack, originally uploaded by hawridger.

Levi whipped by us on Nick-a-Jack and was dancing on the pedals at this first switchback. Wasn't too crowded down here but the top switchback was crazy crowded.

Why Levi received a birdhouse for winning the IIT, I'll never know.

Here's a shot of Danielson at the front of the peloton with about 4k to go on Brasstown Bald today.

For more great shots from the Tour de Georgia, head over to flickr and look at the 2007 Tour de Georgia Pool. If you've got shots from the '07 TDG, then share them on flickr and add them to the 2007 Tour de Georgia Pool.

Here is the first of many shots to come from the Tour de Georgia.

I sure wish I was there. I'll be on Nick a Jack tomorrow for the ITT. I'll have plenty of shots of my own to share in the coming days.

100th Post

I really dig this shot and I think its worthy for the 100th post on Cycling Shots.

Almost a year ago (April 28, 2006), I made my first post to Cycling Shots after I went to the Tour de Georgia. I'll be heading there again next week for some more cycling shots. It's been a blast and here's to a few more years of Cycling Shots!
