The Tour of Britain

Last weekend the Tour of Britain had the joy of going through Sussex and on that stage it went through our little town and of course we headed off to take a look. I had never seen the town so busy with what seemed like everyone making their way to the high street.

The thing is we had a rough idea as to what time they would appear but there was still some waiting around with lots and lots of police bikes, various medical cars and team cars. Every time something came round there was a cheer followed by a groan when they realised it was the cyclists.

And then it happened, the lead riders came hurtling around the corner and boom that was it, in a flash the front 5 guys had whizzed past us and then we had to wait for the chasing pack.

About 10 minutes later the rest of the field came past and again it was so fast it was difficult to make anyone out and with regards to taking photos it was more press and hope.

Now taking photos proved to be a bit tricky but I did manage to take one good photo out of the lot.

On the whole we enjoyed the event and soon rushed back home to see if we could see ourselves on the TV but unfortunately we didn't.

Did anyone else manage to see the Tour of Britain?
