The Prologue or time trial works like this. Each boy starts on a ramp as the time is counted down. He takes off and the team car races behind him. The car is equipt with a loud speaker and they yell things (what I don't know). Each boy races the clock. Connor's time was probably 6:47 (according to Dave's watch). I don't know where he placed yet but I do know that the yellow jersey went to Team USA--Adam Liebowitz with a time of 6:21 (30 seconds faster than the winning time last year). So, I think Connor should feel like he had a great ride. Now, we will be defending the yellow jersey!
Tomorrow is a road race (who knows how long. I went to ask Dave and he is back in fetal position, snoring softly and approaching that blissful REM state. Wish I didn't find that so illusive! More tomorrow. Keep tuned.
Enjoy the photos.
