Garrett Lemire 2008

2008

The race was run on April 13, 2006. That is almost two weeks later than the usual time frame. I arrived at the race in time to see the Women Racers depart. Photos Here.

Then the kids race was run. They also had a coloring contest where the kids colored jerseys and won bikes as the reward. The kids race starts by the post office and rushes the length of the arcade some 100 yards to the finish line. They ride in a collection of bikes at different age groups. They ride on a collection of bikes from tricycles to mountain bikes to road bikes. The winners of the age groups also get new bikes. I submitted the picture of the girl on the podium in the pink outfit to the Astana Team Giro Contest. I won a signed photo of Alberto Contrador, Levi Leipheimer and Johan Bruyneel. Photos Here.

Then the Men's Pro Race. It was quite a hot day by then. The difference is made on the hill on the course and that it where I took pictures from. It was a war of attrition with the hill and the heat and the peloton stayed together until the end. Last year's winner, Ivan Dominguez, had enough with one lap to go and pulled out. The race was won by Kyle Gritters: Team Health Net, second place was his teammate John Murphy and third place was Hilton Clarke; Toyota-United. Karl Bordine finished in sixth place.
