Stop It Already
Little rant coming: The running next to the riders on climbs? Gotta calm down with that. The Palomar climb in the ToC was ridiculous, every knucklehead and his brother was running next to the riders. And it wasn’t like they were cheering on anyone in particular, it was just doing it to do it. And it was stupid. So stop already before you take down a rider or hurt another spectator. There, done. Anyway. ToC was huge, the “Lance Effect” was insane, just turning people out in their thousands along the route. Took 3+ hours to get back to SD from the top of Palomar and that was with the sneaky driving thrown in. I’m glad I worked the race in the way I did but not sure race shooting really suits what I want to get out of photography any more. It did a few years ago, but now? Not so sure.
