Tour of Britain Stage 1 (Week 36)

The first stage of the TOB 2012 was finishing at the Norfolk showground. I was originally going to watch the race somewhere as it came in but then I heard they were looking for volunteers to help marshal the event so I signed up. These are a few snapshots from what was a fantastic and very hot day!

This is the final corner of the course before all the spectators arrived. For much of the day this was my position. We did get to see all the team buses, cars and other vehicles arriving. And gradually as the race got nearer to the finish the crowds started to gather here.

 

 

Kristian House was wearing the Skoda King of the Mountains jersey at the end of day one.

And the TeamSky car loaded with the bikes heading to the next stage…
