Color slide of an overhead photograph of a pack of cyclists racing away from the finish line during the Men's Cycling Road
Race of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games. The "Finish/Arrivee" banner is above the cyclists. To the left of the pack are two
lap counters, one manual and one digital; they show six laps remaining. There are grandstands in the left and right foreground
of the photograph that appear to be reserved for officials and perhaps media. The top half of the photograph shows a slope
that leads up to the backs of homes. There is a banner that reads "Go for the gold, USA" hanging from the edge of the roof
of one of the houses. Spectators are scattered on the slope. There are also two American flags that can be seen; one is among
the crowd, and one is in one of the backyards. The cyclists are on O'Neill Road in Mission Viejo, California. O'Neill Road
was later named Olympiad Road in commemoration of this Olympic event. The riders are approaching Marguerite Parkway. At the
top of the slide is a label with "84-008, Frame 105" typed on it. At the bottom of the slide is written "camjl 227" in pencil
and, in red typescript, "27, Jul84H9."
