Bicycle Photography: El Tour de Tucson 2010

This past Saturday was a bike-tography extravaganza for Yours Truly. The 28th annual El Tour de Tucson drew me and my camera to the Downtown finish line for some photographic fun.

First, the anticipation. The top finishers hadn’t arrived yet. But Tucson’s tifosi were waiting for them…

The 109-mile race was won by Eric Marcotte, a 30-year-old chiropractor from Phoenix. He edged out another 30-year-old, Hector Rangel of Hermosillo, Sonora.

Eric and Hector were followed by, well, a lot of people…

Throughout the rest of the day and into the evening, the 6,400-plus El Tour finishers poured into Downtown Tucson.

As they rounded the final corner, they were glad to be done…
