The homes and yards along the South Livermore Avenue route look beautiful ~ Nice job Livermore!

If you talk like you spell they probably had no idea what you wanted

Kris, do you or anyone know what time the race hits Downtown? The second time? They left the starting line in SJ around 11AM

It's really hard to predict at this point but to be on the safe side I'd be in downtown by at least 3 p.m.! I'm hearing around 3:30-4 p.m. The first wave through town was awesome. Tons of energy from the crowd and downtown is jumping right now with many of the restaurants packed.

Anyone else check out the race toward the Stage 3 finish line? Those guys are super fast!

The announcer said they were going at least 34 mph. That's as fast as a car! It was really exciting for the ending, I got some on video as they rushed by. It was a very cool experience and such an awesome thing to witness!

I am not sure why you expect out of town people to have heard of Dom's, not everyone that volunteered or participated live here in Livermore. All of the downtown businesses were given enough notice about the street closures, and also were told when they could enter their private lot, and given enough passes for their employee's. Sounds like Dom's dropped the ball on this one, not Amgen or the local committee.
