I took pictures at the Priority Health Cycling Classic Men's Professionial race this weekend. We're friends with two of the racers, Graham and Stephen "Sven" Howard so that made it a lot more fun. Graham (http://www.teampriorityhealth.com/teams/rider-bios/graham-howard) is on the professional team and Stephen has been offered a professional contract for next year. The race lasted about 90 minutes and they rode between 35-40 miles per hour for the whole race.

In this picture Stephen (with white socks) is drafting off Graham (black helmet) as they ride around a corner.

This is at the beginning of the race when everyone is still all bunched up. By the way, Graham told me you feel pretty beat up riding on all that cobble stone for 90 minutes.

My favorite places to watch was on the curves. Stephen is the 2nd person in green.

This is the last one I'll post tonight. It is toward the end of the race and they are in one of the last few laps on the start/finish stretch. They're looking pretty tired.

If you want to see more pictures here is a link to my web album from the race.

By the way one of their teammates place in the top three and Stephen came in 5th.
