OR notes[edit]

I pre-created this article as it is scheduled to begin today (UTC) in the early morning. Unless the weather is horrible, I intend to go and take some pictures of the cyclists. I really have no idea how big (or small) this event is, but they are closing down a good portion of the city for this. Cheers, --SVTCobra 00:45, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I went and attended the Men's Open 25-mile race. I think #5 from Long Island won (see last picture), but I will post the results when they are available. I brought my camera this time, so they are not snapshots by a cell-phone (mobile). Commons said to upload the highest resolution available, so be careful if you click to view full size. I will add captions to the gallery later. I used the breaking tag, since things will change (and the race ended about one hour ago. --SVTCobra 16:36, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Nice work and good images! --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 18:29, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Once the results have been added, I think this should be added to our blog. SVTCobra, if you send me or one of the other blog authors an email, we can invite you to join us on the blog.--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 18:53, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, I have been checking the official site for the results, but they are still not posted. The Tour de France is a little more efficient in that regard. But I don't think there are any doping allegations in this race. --SVTCobra 19:31, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
