A day at the races – British National Road Race in pictures

Sunday 23 June was a great day for cycling in Scotland.
The cream of British cycling descenced on the city of Glasgow to battle it out for the title of British Champion.
There were thrills aplenty (and luckily not too many spills) along the way.

I had the good fortune to see the end of the women’s race (alas no pictures).
And spend the duration of the men’s race in good company around the course.

There are plenty of great race reports & photos around the web.
So this is simply a few pictures I took of my day at the races…

Montrose street was a popular spot, with one Manxman wearing nothing but a Man flag.
It was like being in the Alps!

Me: Are you getting a lift home on the Death Star? (Millar’s nickname for the Team Sky’s bus)
Bronze medal winner and ‘Man of the Match’ David Millar: Ha ha! No! But I’m off there for a shower.
