While we’ll admit that we’re not the biggest professional sports fans ever invented, we were admittedly taken with some of the excitement surrounding the first annual USA Pro Cycling Challenge, which ended in Denver yesterday with a win for American Levi Leipheimer. After all, who doesn’t love bicycles? Alas, when we arrived at the prelude race course last week and found our camera battery dead, we were left to take in the race as most along the Westside course: in blurs of logo-fied color and cowbell.

Lucky for us that Westsider John Sondericker brought his camera along and captured these fantastic shots of the racers sitting still as the world races past them like inter-dimensional travelers from the future in skin-tight clown suits.

Thanks John!
