Tdf Slideshow Part Deux(26 posts)

Tdf Slideshow Part Deuxteoteoteo
Jan 21, 2003 6:11 AM
For everyone that wanted more. These pics are all from the 2000 Tour that I found on a cd that I had forgotten about. They were shot by myself or my friend Rob and most are from a Digi Olympus. The pictures that are lower-res are captures from our digi video cam.

The first pic is in Agen at the stage start....(grainy still from video cam)

Jens says "I am going to attack," "If that doesn't work I'll attack again"

(Actually I don't know what he said)

JaJa says "I love the VTT style visor...It is how you say, Tre' Poser"

(VTT=MTB in French)

I can't figure why JaJa had the visor on the helmet. This was another video capture from my friend Rob so I can't add much of a story

Mapei guys all got their hair done before LeTour. Chann wasn't supposed to ride but was a last minute sub--The TdF was not on his program but he'd done well in the Giro.

Days after this pic I waited on Ventoux with his wife Jen who is a friend. Chann never came up he'd dropped out earlier after a crash. Every Mapei rider she'd scream there he is only to be wrong.

Here's how to keep up with the race while your at the stage finish. This big screen is your lifeline to the race while you chill out and people watch. They transport this to all the stage finishes.

Off for a nice ride. It will be 70 degrees in Austin today! Many more pics to come. As long as everyone is game let's say Thursday will be part 3.

70? Heck, it's 83 degrees at 12:30 here in Austin. I'm going to need an extra water bottle and some sun screen. Thanks for the pics and enjoy your ride!

It was a lovely day. I actually got a little hot. I did about 2 hours on the road. The high today was 88! Amazing!
Enjoyed the show! Thanx!!! (nm)wasabekid

Remember when Chann rode amature for the Chili's team?Tig
Jan 21, 2003 10:47 AM
Everyone knew and feared Chann in those days. No one in the Texas racing scene was surprised to see him do so well later. I hope he continues to kick butt.
Thanks for the show (nm)PEDDLEFOOT
