Have I mentioned that I am excited about the USA Pro Championship races in Greenville? Yeah, I thought maybe I had. I really enjoyed watching the time trial this morning from my spot near the turnaround point. Unfortunately, my camera started to malfunction in the light rain and I missed getting pictures of many of the riders out on the course, including race winner Dave Zabriskie. Oh well, that’s OK. I got a few good race pictures that I will post next week on Flickr. Besides, this blog is all about the bikes anyway. Luckily, by the time the race was over, my piece of junk camera was dried out, cooled down, and reluctantly working again. After the awards presentation, when I saw the race-winning bike being put away, I was glad that the camera chose to cooperate. The rear disc wheel had just come off so that the bike could go on a roof rack, but otherwise, this is the set up that Zabriskie used to win the Stars and Stripes jersey today. Pretty nice, huh? I just love time trial bikes.
