Maybe Floyd will be here to defend his title. Now if only we can keep the crackerheads off the streets long enough for the riders to make it out alive.

nah. Make 'em commute with the rest of the crowd. 205/580/680 in the side lane. Drafting the semi's down into San Joser should be entertaining to watch.

Dang....

I mean...good for you ;)

I wish the tour still had a start in Martinez cause I live there and it is a great place to start a race. I really enjoyed playing hooky from work and catching the race downtown last year.

I'm with you. It was fun to see them start here in Martinez. It looks as though the East Bay got ignored on this go round.

Actually it won't be bakc in the east bay until Paul Sherwen learns how to pronounce Martinez. Totally ruined it for myself and millions of others. Worse yet, everytime I go through Martinez now, I can hear his voice butchering the pronunciation.

You'll just have to come over the hill and play hooky again.

Bummer. There was an article in our local rag that they might do a stage in the Santa Cruz area, maybe something over the mountains from San Jose, or maybe a stage from Santa Cruz to Monterey.

Aw, carp.

For a minute, I thought Amgen was a new brewery. Dammit. :madman:

Shows how much I watch road racing.
