I'm heading down to Salt Lake City in a few minutes to watch the kick off (Prologue) of the Tour of Utah ("America's Toughest Stage Race" :p )--it starts at 6 p.m. I'll report when I get back.

Alright, I'm back. Good times had by all. More people were there for the kickoff this year. Plenty of famous people: Levi L, G. Hincapie, plenty of others. Here are some of the pictures I took. It was a good kickoff to what should be a great race.

Taylor Phinney, only 20, who kicked everyone else's butt. He's funny too. Lots of joking around with the media afterwards:

=========

And to top off a good night, my son, 10, got a great photo with just him and Levi. Levi was already dressed in regular shorts and a t-shirt and him and his buddy were walking back to the parking lot when my son approached them. His friend was nice enough to take the picture. That was nice of Levi Leipheimer to do that. Class act.
