2007 Discovery Training Camp, Solvang and Ojai, California

I had heard that Discovery Cycling Team was having a camp in Solvang. I took a chance and drove up there. The team was again at the Scandinavian Inn! It was the team photo day so lots of Photographers taking team and road action shots. The riders changed clothing a couple of times as they were advertising Nike Gear. Lance had gone for the day to Las Vegas for a speaking engagement. The big player was Ivan Basso who had just signed with Discovery. I got my picture in the April issue of ProCycling Magazine as I got an autograph of Basso.(editor note Basso would ride the Tour of California for Discovery and later admit he had intended to dope. He would resign from Discovery and serve a two year suspension from pro cycling.) Photos Here.

I would then go to the Ojai on Friday and the team rode in from Solvang. Photos Here. Then back again on Saturday for the sponsor ride. I got a number of the pictures autographed that I had taken at Solvang. Photos Here.
