What a day! (Well, yesterday...)
I woke up at about 4 AM to ride with a few friends from the Westside to the start at Dodger Stadium on the dark streets of LA. The sunrise once we arrived was stunning.
I went out with the LA TriClub as a "pace timer." On our bikes we basically leap-frogged the elite athletes and called their times into the media.
Talk about a bird's eye view. For several miles we would tail the field of elite men by mere feet! It was amazing.
We were caught on TV quite a bit! (This newscaster got a lot of sun...)
After the race I did a sequence of timelapses. I got some killer vantage points with my Media Pass (long story!)
All in all an incredible day and I'm proud of my friends who all had a killer time on such a great course. (LA FINALLY got it right!) Great job runners!
