Olympic Road Race Trial – Sunday 14th Aug 2011
Sunday saw the trial run of the London/Surrey road race. My wife and I decided to take the dogs for a walk to to see the riders come through. The course runs about a mile from where we live.
Having never seen this type of thing before it was a really amazing sight, Over a hundred riders sped past at high speed along with an unbelievable amount of back up cars, police and ambulances.
To take the shots I crouched down low right at the kerbside. As the pack came through I was nearly blown over by the amount of wind that the pack created.
Now looking forward to July next year when its for real.
