Last evening after the show, a few of headed into town to watch the Eurobike sponsored crit race. The field was a mix of national fast guys and Tour riders. In terms of speed and talent....look at it like a Team Toyota-United or HealthNet-Maxxis. Jens Voight was NOT racing....but Tour stage winner & yellow jersey holder Linus was.
It's all about the baked goods I tell ya!
TV coverage....crowds 3 deep all the way around the 1.4k course.....MOST EXCELLENT!
Narrow streets and pave. Always a good thing.....from a spectators point of view.
Linus taking his turn up front.
Here is a few movie clips pieced together...
80 laps and 2.5 hours later....the race came to an end.
