Tour of Alberta – Edmonton Prologue Photos

It was very neat to see these guys riding through the streets here last night. This is one of the most difficult sports I’ve photographed, they are very fast. Peter Sagan of Slovakia won it in 8 minutes and 28.1 seconds. The course was 7.3 km.

Persistence

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.  -Calvin Coolidge
