Just another day in the pro-peloton…

Just another day for the pro-peloton at the 2010 Amgen Tour of California. “Big” George Hincapie rolling through downtown Santa Rosa, behind the leaders group. For the 2nd year in a row despite moving the race to May, rain poured down for the Santa Rosa stage. Key for this shot is watching for race referee vehicle and hearing the crowd and bells just in front of the racers as they passed by. AI Servo mode works well for tracking moving subjects either coming at you or moving away.
