I’ve been meaning to share this photo for some time now but never had a good place to do it. Singletracks is, after all, a mountain biking website and most people here just aren’t interested in roadie stuff. But now that Lance
is was going to race mountain bikes, I feel somewhat justified. Floyd, on the other hand, started out on mountain bikes long ago so I guess he’s a bit more legit to some folks.
Anyway, this photo was shot at the Tour de Georgia in April 2005. This was just before Lance’s final Tour and believe it or not, he did not end up winning the Tour de Georgia (despite finishing first on the mountain stage pictured here). My little bro John somehow snapped this awesome photo as the guys were pushing up the hill, pretty impressive given the speed these guys were moving.
