Escondido is Spanish for Hot Box

The Tour of California is here again.
I feel for these guys, 100 degrees plus 11,000 or so feet of climbing 
does not make for a pleasant opening stage. 
I just hope they rehydrate well tonight because stage 2 is going
to be even nastier. Hot valley floors, more climbing, and then 
ending in Palm Springs where the temperature is expected to reach 108. 
Good Luck guys!
Here are some pics from this morning, enjoy:

Philippe Gilbert
showing why you wear white shorts
with WC stripes.


Marco Pinotti 
the (Italian) gentleman rider

The Vacansoliel stable

Andy had a little spark on todays stage, maybe I can finally
 wear my Luxembourg socks with pride again.

Not my roof rack,
wish it was.

Sylvain Chavanel
His tattoo is getting bigger. 

 Tyler Farrar the ginger warrior.

 Omega Pharma something or other,
or as Phil Ligget would say: Omeeeeega 

Vacansoliel, the team of the day.
Must of been the bikes.
