This year, I decided to take Kiersta with me to watch the cyclists. It was cold and rainy but we had fun.
A break in the weather! We can hang up our umbrellas by the Swedish flag.
Kiersta was pretty frightened when the riders came by. I had warned her not to step out into the street for fear of her causing a rider to crash. Luckily, both she and the peloton came through safely. However, Levi did hit Lance's rear wheel further on up the road and came down hard, fracturing some part of his body.
Here are the boys from Team Astana (Go Lance! Go Levi!) leading the way up Sierra Road.
I'm proud to be a very small part of cycling history and to say that I was there when Lance made his comeback ride in the States.
