2008 Fitchburg-Longsjo Photos

Update: Unfortunately, I had to remove these pictures because of copyright issues. Oh well. As a substitute, you can hover over any of the links and WordPress will automatically display a preview of the picture.

I think the pictures (follow the links) tell a pretty good story about how the race played out starting with a driving rainstorm for the last few time trial riders; Colavita-Sutter Home at the front driving the field in several of the races; Stefan Rothe winning sprint points; Mike Olheiser riding off the front in the crit; and lots of great racing. Enjoy!
