As most of you know, I shoot the Pro Cycling events from a moto. This week I'll try to keep a running log of the ups n downs of the race from our seat-
Today we get the new motos that have been getting customized for a few weeks - BMW 800 GS bikes, perhaps not the best choice as the tank is under the seat and becomes very wide w/ sharp edges that dig into your calves when standing..... we used a similar bike in the Tour of PA last yr and I swear I still have tender spots.... the other down side is the Belgum like weather here in Sacramento.... other than that, all is positive - this will be the biggest US tour in the history of cycling in this country- word is, we will be live over 160 channels around the world.....
Yesterday saw Lance slay a UK reporter at the press conference and Floyd hit the deck on a training ride.... he'll start, but no fall is a good one.
So for me, of to do moto RF testing in the rain and then hook up w/ Bob Roll to shoot the Shimano features that will show up in the shows throughout the season on Versus -
