San Francisco 2004 T-Mobile International Cycling Race

It is all over, and San Francisco showed once more that it is a city that loves cycling. Even without Lance Armstrong racing, there were A LOT of cycling fans out for the T-Mobile International Cycling Race.

Charles Dionne, from the Bay Area's WebCor cycling team won the race. Freddy Rodriguez, who had a nasty spill and mechanicals, put the troubles aside to finish second. U.S. Postal's George Hincapie (in the picture below) rounded out the top three.

It was a great race, but if you want to actually see the race from Fillmore, get there early! The pictures are not quite Graham Watson, but enjoy the San Francisco T-Mobile International pix!

Swiss rider Johann Tschopp (36), George Hincapie (16), and Viatcheslav Ekimov?
