Panamerican Games: Cycling

The men's cycling was a pretty neat event. The course ran very close to where we live, so that we could go home in between laps and watch the other segments on TV. It was a beautiful sunny day and lots of people were out to watch the event. At one point a Mexican rider that had a flat tire, had a hissy-fit when the first team car drove right past him. Also a Chilean rider was pretty near the front but didn't end up winning.

eventually the second car arrived

[Sidenote: after the incident we went home to watch the rest of the round on TV
and saw the incident again, unfortunately the cameras missed us by about 2 feet,
so we still haven't made our Mexican TV debut]
