The Tour of Britain on Bolton Road Ashton yesterday...

Stood around for yonks then WHOOOSH! There they were - GONE!

1. The Police rolling roadblock was VERY well done! Smooth operation!



2. The lead group - about 2.5 minutes ahead of the main pack



3. Wiggins, Cavendish et all - the main group



4. Keep your eye on that Motorcycle marshall - he's about to come very close to wiping out Wiggins!



5. Wiggins "Oi gerroutmewaaaaaay!"



6. A splash of green



7. Bikes bikes bikes!



8. Support crews



9. Happy in Orange

Cracking set Dave, if that last car was any joe soap, I think the police would pull him over for being over loaded.

Hi Mick, thanks for the uploads I've watched them all, I enjoyed the last one the car ride best Smile Wink ,but would you not have been better at the "The Red Cat Pub" that's if they was turned there for the "Rainford Bypass", if not one next one up as they both go to the "Bypass" Confused , because that was where I was thinking you was heading for but you went passed them both and came round again Very Happy

It was packed out near to the Red Cat so I went back and parked up next the Kings Moss road.
