Last Friday Kenosha hosted a criterium very close to home sweet home. It was wonderful to beat feet out of work and come home to professional cycling!
My camera really isn't up to the task, but here are a few snaps anyway.
Above: Early into the race there were a few attempts off the front, but nothing really materialized until....
The group right up ^ got off the front and eventually lapped the peloton. That was a first for me.
Saturday night I went to Ravinia to hear the CSO play Mahler's "Symphony of a Thousand". It was wonderful! And just to prove that I don't prey on strangers alone for my sketching fodder, the sleeping man is a close friend. He was a good sport about it when he woke up and caught me staring at his ear. But then the magic was gone, and the light was going, so he remains unfinished.
Thanks for stopping by!
