Tour of Britain 2004
For information about the race go here.
Well, I managed to get a swap with one of my colleagues, which allowed me to take a day off
work and get some pictures of Stage 1 of the Race. Thanks Mike!
The bonus? The weather turned out to be one of the best days for ages. There were fluffy clouds and sunshine,
and no rain for once. I took some shots in Bury, near the town hall. The others were taken on a very familiar
road - the A675 over Belmont which I usually end up climbing in the p***ing rain... ;)
This is the run into Bury on the A56. Andreas Klöden in the centre of the frame
Pavel Padrnos and Paolo Savodelli talking
Mario Aerts back at the T-Mobile Team car
Is it a Tandem?
No! it's Rodney Green and Duncan Urquhart who spent much of the day up at the front
A few minutes later and the rest of the bunch comes up the hill
Including some members of the 'Blue Train' of the US Postal team
