Went up for an excellent day yesterday and managed to blag our way right into the press area where we sat for the whole day. It's amazing how far you can get if you push it. We ended up in an almost empty area 100m from the finish and had a great position for the end of each ride.

So, some flavour shot and some race shots:

Hi there...great shots but there is an 8 photo maximum post. Please change 13 photos to a link where they can still be viewed but the rules are abided by. Many thanks.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Great series. Too bad about the sun.

Thanks for sharing, I love to see cycling photos.

Some great action shots in there captured really well. I'd like to see some close-ups of the cyclists' expressions if you've got them too though.

What kit and what settings did you use for these photos?

I went with friends so just had a 30D and Tamron 17-50 and a 100/2 (which was a bit long for where we were). I''ll have a dig through later for close-ups.
