Women on Tower Hill by Andy McFarlane

The 2008 Tour de Leelanau bike race took place on Sunday. BMC’s Taylor Tolleson took first place in the very close men’s race (followed by Bissell riders Ben Jacques-Maynes and Teddy King) while the women’s race was blown wide open by Anne Samplonius of Cheerwine, who finished over 2 minutes ahead of teammate Leigh Hobson and Joanne Kiesanowski (Tibco).
