Tour of California Stage 2: Awards Etc.

Here's the scene after the race.

A small part of the crowd watching the awards at the finish line. I managed to squeeze my way up pretty close on the right side of the stage.

Cycling TV personality Bob Roll looking perturbed about something.

Close to far, Francisco Mancebo (KOM leader, sprint leader), Robert Gesink (best young rider), Levi Leipheimer (overall tour leader), and Ben Jacques-Maynes (most courageous rider).

Jacques-Maynes giving an interview.

Levi wondering where his wallet has gotten to, or something.

Levi: "Do I really have to go up on stage again for the fourth time today? Well at least I get kissed by you for winning."

1st (Thomas Peterson), 2nd (Levi Leipheimer), and 3rd place (Michael Rogers) for the day's stage.
