Numero quatre Lance brings home

Lance brings home number four. Awesome. The man is like a machine, which is so impressive because he is so much a human in so many ways. Maybe the French will finally show him some respect.

Photo gear for the Tour

Famed cycling photographer Graham Watson posted photos of the equipment he uses to cover a typical race.
I brought along some camera equipment to the Tour as well. Not as much as Graham, but coincidentally, some of our gear overlapped. I used some similar film: Fuji Provia 100F and Fuji Velvia. I also carried the same flash as Graham (#3 in his photo: SB28) and two of the same lenses (#8: the 80-200mm f2.8 and #11: the 16mm fisheye f2.8). I wish I could afford some of those other lenses, but as an enthusiast it's hard to justify the expense. Someday.


CBS owns the rights to broadcast the last stage of the Tour. Well, they showed about a few minutes worth of actual riding from the last stage today. Basically, they showed Robbie Mcewen sprinting across the finish to win the stage and the green jersey. American cycling coverage is terrible.
