Moments from the 2006 Tour of California

It was February 21, and Stage 2 (Martinez to San Jose) of the inaugural Tour of California. I took a short break from my work-from-home day, saddled the bike, and headed a few miles down to Castro Valley to await the peloton.

Then at 12:50pm ...

... the breakaway group with Michael Creed (TIAA-CREF), Ben Jacques-Maynes (Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada) and Mads Kaggestad (Credit Agricole) rides up East Castro Valley Blvd.

5 minutes behind, the peloton is led by Team Gerolsteiner, with Fabian Wegmann in front:

... followed by riders from Teams CSC, Phonak with Floyd Landis, HealthNet and Kodak/Sierra:

George Hincapie (Discovery) went on to win the stage; Floyd finished 7th.
