Because a good chum lives a short bike ride from the Olympic Cycle Road Races at Box Hill, I couldn't resist going along. this was the Brits leading :
A few more cyclists charging by, and I couldn't believe how fast they went. Unfortunately I'd only got my little Panasonic, and as it's a great camera in many ways, the processing speed wouldn't win a lot of Olympic medals. So I got loads of pics of empty tarmac, as the riders had long gone by the time the camera had done it's stuff.
The lady's race on Sunday was also pretty exciting :
But it didn't half rain :
