so as a rest day from the tour of the battenkill, i went back to cambridge, NY to watch the Tour of the Battenkill Pro Invitational. It was pretty quite and not many spectators were their yet, but i wasn't there to chit-chat i was there to for some "bike-porn."

Only after the racers had huddled around a TV to see the end of the Amstel Gold Race was it time to start the race!
With 2.5-3hrs to kill i felt it would be nice to go see them suffer the way many riders did the day before at the pro-am tour of the battenkill.
the racers weren't bad but the car's were throwing up so much dust, it had to be hard breathing for the riders
After joining the armada of cars following the race and passing dropped riders it was back to the finish line to naturally see the finish of the race, with only a short 2.5 hour wait. then over the load speaker the riders were just outside 1k to go!
and then the big finale
and your winner of Tour of the Battenkill Pro Invitational 2012
