Amgen Tour of California heads toward Pasadena

I wanted more than anything to get a shot of Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins on the street I ride so often — Berkshire in La Canada. The Amgen Tour of California descended Angeles Crest Highway and headed east on Berkshire to the stage finish in Pasadena. My husband and I set up lawn chairs on the shoulder and waited half an hour for the riders to speed by. I was so excited when Wiggins appeared that I missed a clear shot, but at least got him in focus with teammate Danny Pate (see middle photo). Here are a couple of other shots I liked. I only had one chance to shoot the riders — they were gone in a second.
