Cancer Council Classic

The man of the moment; tonight at Adelaide's Tour Down Under prelude event saw Lance Armstrong's first professional road race in nearly four years. A record crowd of 138,000 people were there to witness the occasion. One of Lance's objectives in returning to racing is to raise cancer awareness.

I was lucky to be in a box seat, right at the start/finish line; my wife works for UniSA and we had tickets to their corporate area.

Good shot of an interesting man. What does your wife do at UniSA?

Steffe said...

Wow, that's a big turnout!

Ann said...

What a big crowd, do they ever fall and cause a "stampede"?

Julie - my wife is a library technician and works in Technical Services unit of the library.

Ann - the crowds here are pretty well behaved.

I'm a new visitor. When I saw all the cameramen and the date, Jan. 20th, I thought you were covering the inauguration in the U.S. Then I realized the crowds were for the cyclists. Do you ride in events too?
