Here's a VIP car in the caravan in advance of the peloton. It was a big surprise when I saw a friend in the lead car, a super fancy Nissan. Paula Mara is a race official and must have been having a blast driving the electric blue convertable for the week of racing.
Here's Radio Shack controlling the pace at the front of the pack just before the Carmel Valley KOM. There was a break about three minutes up the road at this point....I didn't get a photo, though.
Here's the broom wagon doing its job, removing all traces of the race that had just passed. All of the signs and paraphanalia got loaded up to be used the next day.
