First Images from Tour of California
Well it is one day to go before the start of the second Amgen Tour of California, and we are now on-site for our continuing coverage of the race. Today the riders and teams are doing last minute prep before the Prologue tomorrow. We stopped by to snap a few of world champion Paolo Bettini (Quickstep-Innergetic) and chatted briefly with Charles Dionne, who is sporting his new team colours for Colavita-Sutter Home.
This will be Charles' first race since leg surgery in October. "I started riding again in December. It feels good in training, we had the training camp and I was able to ride without pain. But this week will be the first time that I am racing so we will see.
