Tenerife Videos

I recorded a couple videos while in Tenerife Spain for the Astana Cycling Team training camp...Yes I know...I'm a dork.

The Texas Crew boys - Rob and Chris, The SRAM boys - Alex and Jason and I went to dinner at a tapas restaurant and ate some interesting Spanish cuisine...

Chris and I switched off shooting from the moto and in the car while Margie from Nike provided the entertainment...

The team went surfing for a "team building" exercise. Lance was the pro, of course...everyone else was pretty entertaining....Remind me to wear my shoes out on the reef next time...

I had the best moto driver in Tenerife. Diego worked at our hotel and spent his days off driving us around...I felt so comfortable shooting from his bike...sometimes I forget how crazy it is to stand on the pegs and shoot over the drivers head while we're descending at 30 plus mph! His friend Hugo was also the bomb. Thanks guys!

You never know what creepy, bizarre stuff you are going to encounter on the road...and this was a weird one...

So we didn't become road kill while working, Chris and I played twister...

Liz, the videos of Lance and the guys training are great but the baby swans were the best ;) Keep up your blog if you can, it's really interesting.

Great videos and amazing pics on your homepage !! I always thought Graham Watson was the best, but I might have to reconsider :) It must be incredible to be able to combine two fantastic things: photography and cycling. Ever thought of covering the Tour of Flanders or Paris-Roubaix ? That's pure heroism, both for cyclists and photographers :)
