Breakaway Cyclist

The lead cyclist breaks away from the pack during the 2009 Tour de Lions in Grays Chapel, North Carolina earlier this summer. It’s not really a race, but the riders do take things pretty seriously. His late kick enabled him to finish about five minutes ahead of the rest of the field after a 75 mile ride. Not the Tour de France, but a lot of fun nonetheless.
