The peleton in Fillongay .Great bike handling quick descent the sharp left at speed in a bunch made to look ridiculously easy .

Took a short cut and caught them again 2 riders just off the front . I think the Ineos rider was Dylan Van Barle .
The thing that amazes me most is the amount of following cars etc it's some moving circus . Went and watch the ride in Nottinghamshire last year and the villages had really got involved bunting and painted bikes etc . This year the parts of the route I rode didn't see anything

As long as I breathe, I attack.
Luckily not all the pros run Strava so probably only list 100 places :okay:

There is going to be a stack of KOM's smashed near me tomorrow. Wife has decided to go into town early for a swim, so I ride up Werneth Low (MTB) for 12, then hot foot it back to get into Manchester for the finish on Deansgate. Hmm Dirty Martini has a good view.... hic.

Had a walk to the end of the street today to see the tour on Rawson's Rake.

Not a huge pro cycling fan so can anyone help with id of the riders?

Was any other carrier besides Itv4s showing live coverage. A friends town was missed by Itv4s due to ad break

I watched most of this event and seem to have have enjoyed it far more than some. I'm always interested in looking at the scenery and it was great for that. Following progress on Ordnance Survey can be a frustrating experience at times but you don't get bored. The race produced an excellent and thoroughly deserving young winner.

Anyway, for everyone's enjoyment, particularly Wanty fans, another of my grainy images from the time trial. Wesley Kreder at Bricklehampton, shortly before the mid-way time check:
