paul jensen, all9yards staff photographer, snapped this artsy-fartsy photo of expensive racing machines, just moments before the lemans-style start. hard to recognize the glitzy masi from the stylish lemond from the all-terrain ralph, isn't it?
the peloton, shown here during the second lap, begins to close in on the mostly reverend and his gopher state break companion. series leader lane anderson, in his pink leader's kit, sits fourth wheel. eventually, anderson and another team masi rider bridged up to the mostly reverend, who graciously moved aside. the mostly reverend, a seasoned racer, knows who butters HIS daily bread!
don't forget: the series finale is next week, saturday, march 24, at 1100 a.m. for all details, check out cyclingupdate.com, including exciting news about the first tandem road race of the year, or something.
