17th May
written by Mike

My camera and I had a minor disagreement today.  It wanted to complain about a corrupt memory card and I wanted it to shoot some photos.   After a few wasted seconds I won but not until the majority of bike riders flew by.  And fly they do.

So here is the basic long shot of the pack:

Amgen Tour of California Stage1 Pack


And the standard photo of the pack.

2011 Amgen Tour of California

RaboBank 2011 Tour of California



I tried to identify these two rider properly but I guess at this hour of the night my skills are not up to the task.  Here is the link to the Rabobank’s cycling home page.

According to the official Tour of California page this is the rider list for Rabobank:

  • Oscar Freire (ESP)
  • Lars Boom (NED)
  • Coen Vermeltfoort (NED)
  • Paul Martens (GER)
  • Michael Matthews (AUS)
  • Grischa Niermann (GER)
  • Laurens Ten Dam (DEN)
  • Maarten Tjallingii (NED)
