Well! That was one good day of racing!
This was my 3rd or 4th year that I have been covering CC. Unlike the previous years, where I have been at the KOM, I decided to position myself further down the climb - approximately 3 km from the top. The backdrop was really nice with an almost vertical cliff wall with some great patterns and colours. Mette (mrs. Veloshotz) attended me on this event and was covering the race primarily with a very wide angled lens mounted on the D700. Mette got some great photos in the box and has been praised widely by so many people that it is not funny! One of her photos attracted more than 40 likes on Facebook - pretty good! It is a bit unfair to myself as I have been out there taking 1000's of photos and rarely been praised in the same manner. Must be beginners luck!
I have attached one of her photos to this blog.

Thanks for visiting.
