Two bicycling posts in the same day! This morning was the start of the annual Nature Valley Grand Prix. Today the grand prix features two races, starting with a morning time trial along Mississippi River . Living only a block or two from the course, there was no reason to not get out and shoot some images this morning. The river road course was a beautiful setting for a race, and it was a load of fun to see these pros cranking along one of the roads I ride all the time. I'll be heading to downtown Saint Paul tonight for the first Criterium of the series.
