Lance Armstrong and the USPS team visited San Francisco on September 14, 2003 to race in the T-Mobile International. (Formerly known as the SF Grand Prix.) I managed to get a prime viewing location on Fillmore and watched some of the world’s best riders struggle up the steep incline.
There are some of the pictures that I took. I will be adding more when I get more time to sort through them. (Besides, the only bike rider you wanted to see was Lance, right?) In the meantime, feel free to browse through what’s here.
Lance and Friends - Lance is joined up the climb by teammate and fellow tour competitor, Viatcheslav Ekimov.
