Tour of Missouri, Stage 5, Schluersburg Hill somewhere near Augusta, Mo.
What a day this was! Todd and I got to the hill at 10:30 and staked out our spot. We had the cue pit, washers and a cooler full of adult beverages to keep us warm. The temp was an amazing 65 degrees at gametime. We had a blast talking and partying with all the other mad cyclists from the Show Me State.
As you can see from the photos, Todd had a little more fun than most.
How often does one have a chance to run side by side to the reigning Tour de France winner and 2nd loser? Everyone was yelling at Todd to get out of the way, but he just kept on trucking, swinging his shirt and showing off his manly man body.
Then 15 second later they were gone!
While this does not even come close to being at the Tour de France, it was great that I only had to drive an hour to experience the best cycling in the world.
