Champion cyclists from around the world raced down Sunset Boulevard through Silver Lake and Echo Park this morning during the last leg of the Amgen Tour of California. The pack of riders, which were headed to Downtown Los Angeles after starting in Beverly Hills, glided quickly on Sunset Boulevard, which had been closed off to traffic for a few hours. In fact, the whole thing was over in far less than five minutes, including a long trail of support vehicles and police escorts. “Well, that was a very short race,” said one small boy who had been standing on the sidewalk. Robert Gesink (pictured above at the head of the pack above) of the Netherlands emerged as the winner.
