Going through my shots and noticed this. I was wondering what Cruz was doing with a saddle pack until I realized it was the buttcam. Check out those legs!!!

Some people are naturally predisposed to this, but I race with a lot of 3% body fat types and haven't seen more than about a half-dozen nasty cases in my career (10+ years racing). My feeling is that these guys would exhibit varicosity no matter if they were racing or sedentary; it just so happens that it's a lot more obvious in cyclists because their legs are both shaved and very low in body fat. It also doesn't hurt that it was something like 100 degrees there yesterday, so their blood vessels were on "max cool" setting. I happen to be svelte not skinny and even my lower legs get kinda knotty looking in 100 degree humid weather.

Anyone remember Sean Kelly's legs? Now THERE was a nasty case of varicose veins.
seen tchmil's legs? (nm)yeah right

Looks like a great shot! Paul Sherwin kept saying, every 5 minutes for the entire 2.5 hours how cool the camera was and that it was new technology, etc. etc... very cool stuff though!

Lest this turns into a photo board, I refer you to the NYC race topic below. I didn't see OLN's coverage, but it would have been great if the camera caught Vogels scrapping away. He was constantly yelling at the Navigator guy who wouldn't pull, as well as bumping and staring down the Jelly Belly guy who got squirrelly and almost took him down.

the two most commonly used camera are produced by toshiba and sony. they either call them lipstick or bullet cameras.
the cameras themselves weigh about 100 grams. the problem is the CCD sending unit that must accompany the camera. it weighs around 400 grams! that's adding a good pound to pound and a quarter to your bike. not much for a crit, or flat tour stage, but i doubt you'll see it on lance's bike in the alps!
they are used alot in surveillance or applications where a full sized, or even a mini dv cam is too large. you see them alot on tv shows where people are driving. they stick 'em to the windshield. watch the news at 6, if your station has a helicopter, that's probably what they use for the interior shots!
