Finally about to get some sleep after a whirlwind 2 days at Tour of Missouri. Scored some great b-roll yesterday at the race finish in Jefferson City then ate dinner with the teams. Got a chance to talk with Levi, Jens, George, Bernie, Kristy, Jan and a few other riders & staff. Today we were pleasantly surprised to line up Paul Sherwen after a random meeting at Starbucks. Paul gave us all sorts of time as we fired question after question at him. Amazing to hear his stories and perspective on this year's Tour.
I was supposed to shoot from a motorcycle but the race promoter took me off the list once Cavendish bailed out of the race. Not sure why but I did what I could to line up a moto to shoot from during the time trail and it just wasn't meant to be.
We polished off the day with one of the most poignant interviews I've filmed - HUGE thanks to Jens Voigt who gave us over an hour of his time. Thankfully the sunset held off long enough for him to finish - the man can talk!
Then it was out for mexican food with Jan and some of the staff. Pretty full day I'd say. Back to DC tomorrow after we try to connect with Cav in Kansas City where he's hanging out with his lady friend.
