Hanging out with the pros.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Marketing or Branding, but it isn't every day that the USA's biggest cycling event comes to your back yard. These pics are from today's TT warmup at The Cliffs.
The guy with the buzz cut is A.J. Smith
, who is racing with (not for) Lance Armstrong's Discovery Channel team
. The guy with the hat is Mr. Ekimov
(USPS and Discovery team veteran). The guy with the beard is Team CSC's Dave Zabriskie
(he won the time trial today, by the way) who beat Lance Armstrong in the '05 Tour De France prologue and is one of the only American cyclists to have worn the Maillot Jaune in France.
I should be seeing a lot more of these guys this weekend. All access doesn't suck.Technorati Tags: cycling, ekimov, zabriskie, time-trial, USA Cycling pro championships, South Carolina, F360, Discovery Channel, pro cyclist
