The Garmin-Slipstream team presented their 2009 squad to a packed crowd at the Boulder Theater on Saturday night, November 22. The gala affair capped off a week of training rides, team building exercises, media interviews and general carousing for the Colorado-based outfit. In the next several days, I will be posting up comments from the short interviews I did with riders such as Christian Vande Velde, Jonathan Vaughters, Tyler Farrar, Martijn Maaskant, Bradley Wiggins, Matty White, etc.
This blog is dedicated to the team training ride I was invited to join on Saturday morning. The goal for the day was to do a two-hour spin with the team riders making short appearances to the head of the group so that team photographer, Casey Gibson, could take some on-the-bike action shots for media and promotional purposes. Below is a photo essay of the ride with captions including some of my on-the-bike shots of the ride. BTW, operating a small point and shoot camera with gloved hands while traveling 20+mph adds a whole new dimension to action photography.
