Flickr'ing the Prologue
I think that Saturday's Prologue must be the most Flickr'ed sports event in history. With a million spectators viewing an event on public roads, there are at least hundreds of photos from the London Prologue posted on Flickr.
And the growth of the digital SLR means that a lot of them are really good quality pictures. Graham Watson doesn't have to worry yet, but the pros can't provide the coverage that a million spectators can.
Some of my favorites:
Didi, by One Del?
Christophe Moreau, by Rider Planto
Here's a quick rundown of notable photos of favorite riders:
Cancellara 2 in maillot jaune
Vinokourov 2 3 4
Zabriskie 2 3
Levi Leipheimer 2
Bradley “Oasis” Wiggins, and underway
Beautiful shot of Benoit Vaugrenard, who finished 10th Saturday.
