I drove a pace car in this year’s pro-am day of the Tour of the Battenkill, a really big – and really tough – bike race in New York’s Washington County. Part of what makes this race “special” is that it includes eight stretches of dirt roads over the very hilly 62-mile course.
With over 2,300 racers in many different classes, I had lots of time to kill before and after the race in which I was driving. So I took some pictures, trying to capture some of the feeling of the event.
