Here's a few images I got of the top guys in the Tour of California, all in the Solvang time trial:

Levi:

Lance:

David Zabriskie (US national time trial champion, 2nd overall in ToC, using his tongue on the climb of Ballard Canyon):

Michael Rogers (Aussie national time trial champion, 3rd overall in ToC) shifting:

Jens Voigt, with his open mouth like a big air scoop:

Robert Gesink (best young rider, who's incredibly tall & slender, by biking standards), looking like an Ichabod Crane on the bike:

For some of these, the 70 end of the 70-200 was too long, I was so close - so it was a battle to keep them in the frame...

Thanks, Jay - can't figure out what's up with the link, though, b/c it works for me.

If you think the yellow is ugly, you should have seen the gold they used in prior years - that was really fugly, IMO.

We had warm & sunny the latter part of the week, thank goodness, but these riders suffered mightily earlier in the week - cold, windy, rain for 4-5 hours on the bike is no fun - even for pros (these were on the Sierra Road climb on the stage from San Jose to Modesto):

These guys look a bit shell-shocked & miserable:
