The eighth and final stage of the 2012 Tour of California rolled through Downtown L.A. on Sunday, part of a busy day that included Kings and Clippers playoff games at L.A. Live. Kathy and I didn't go down there for any of that, but we couldn't help but take in a little of the bike race: our apartment was dead in the middle of the five-lap sprint loop that finished out the stage.

Riders zipped by us heading north on Olive street, and then a few minutes later heading south on Hill street.

My photos from yesterday are just little snapshots compared to the ones I took for blogdowntown the last time the tour came through Downtown, but it was fun to get out for a few minutes with the camera nonetheless.

You can see larger versions of the photos over in the gallery section.
