Photo Epic: Practice
Finale seems more on pace with vacation than bike race this year. Practice of the four stages was dealt with in one day and riders were given Saturday off as the Challenger race took place. That's not to say practice was uneventful. With a helicopter evacuation on the top of stage two and a resulting hour and change delay, the day proved longer than most expected. Saturday, well..... not much but good living going on before the final showdown.
