Waiting for the Off. The racers in suits, get ready. You don’t start on your bike, but have to run to your bike and unfold it. It reminds of the old GP races when you had to run to your car.
UPDATE: Robert Heras (the former Tour de France rider) finished 2nd!. I think he was hoping to win! The winner was Alastair Kay, who is an elite Cat roadie riding for York Cycleworks.
The First Corner. One or two came off. It was certainly entertaining to watch!

Serious Racing. I love the fact they wear suits, although the aesthetic effect is somewhat compromised by shorts.
Enjoying the Race. I’ve never seen so many people smiling in a cycling race before. People came from all over the world to enjoy the world championships.
Enjoying the race.
