Tour of Utah, Stage 4

Todays stage was epic, the first climb reminds me of an alpine stage in Europe! We climbed right by Sundance, past Mount Timpanogos (pictured bellow) and threw Wasatch Mountain State Park. Rock Racing's Michael Creed, went over the top solo.

There were fans on the climb.

Michael Creed was caught bye the group :(

Garmin Chipotle's Blake Caldwell remains in yellow

BMC's Jeff Louder wins the day!

I have arrived! Tour of Utah here I come! & Canon v Nikon



So after a hectic day yesterday of; taking my car to get the oil changed and finding out I had a broken axel ( I thought it was a CV joint), having to scramble to get a flight to Salt Lake City, trying to pick up my camera body from repair, it not being ready, my brand new flash pooping out on me and having to send that in for repair and TRADING IN ALL MY CANON GEAR FOR NIKON GEAR, I am the hopefully new owner of a D3! Basically I just got sick and tired of my Canon stuff alway needing repair, I am not saying yet that Nikon will be better buy its worth a try. I am a huge fan of the file quality of the D3. and there are a lot of things that I will review later on, but for now I am just going to take everything as it comes, there are some things I am loosing as well. Check back for race reports and Images!
