Here are some photos and videos of the Stage 6 of the Tour of California as it passed through Wrightwood earlier today.
I laughed when I read this after the race: “The field has made a right hand turn onto the hump between Wrightwood and the descent. It’s a very steep ramp lined by what appears to be the entire population of the town.”
What did the kiddo like best about the race? The packet of jelly beans tossed out the window by the Jelly Belly team support car!

Notice the water bottle that was thrown off to the side of the road in the last video? A friend picked it up after the ride. The secret ingredient? Flat soda! (If anyone knows who threw the water bottle, let me know!)
