Armstrong loses race up l'Alpe d'Huez: See Graham Watson photos
Turns out, Watson was shooting a rolling birthday party on l'Alpe d'Huez, featuring 7-time Tour winner Lance Armstrong and honoring Livestrong Foundation board member and Austin venture capitalist Joe Aragona.
Watson's photo gallery is here: it's fascinating to see the mountain covered in spring flowers instead of screaming fans. If you've ever wondered what Jim Ochowicz rides, you may be surprised: He's on a Team Phonak BMC, while Aragona is on a Specialized, probably hoping to meet the Angel at the mountaintop.
