Specialized Angel sightings

Hopefully, you're reading the stories about the Amgen Tour of California from sources such as VeloNews, Bicycling magazine and other sources included in the feeds in the right column of this blog. I'm not going to comment much on the race itself here because these sources do a much better job than I could hope to do.

The Specialized Angel, Jana Ireton, continues to draw lots of attention on the Internet. At left is a nice photo by California photographer Ken Conley, who posted this image on Flicker.

Specialized's own coverage of the race includes an elevation chart of the day's route, complete with where the Angel will be that day.

Tuesday's race coverage by VeloNews includes a picture of the Angel in all her glory.

The VelociPete blog has plenty of nice photos of the Angel, both from 2006 and 2007. The Angel changed her outfit this year. Gone is the long, flowing skirt, but she's sporting some truly funky boots this year.

PezCycling News did an interview with Jana before the race, and she comes off very well. I'm not surprised, given her prompt and friendly e-mails she's sent me in the past year.

It's good to see Levi Leipheimer is leading the race after the second stage, and I'm pulling for him to continue his success the rest of the week.
