Tour of Britain 2019 Photos

I’ve spent the last two days watching the Tour of Britain as it passed through the West Midlands. Thursday’s Stage 6 was a shortish 14km time trial. Starting in Pershore it left the town, had a jolly around the countryside before returning back over the river bridge and heading to the finish line.

Boels Ladies Tour 2019 Preview – Tips, Contenders, Profile

The Boels Ladies Tour starts today with a tiny tiny prologue of 3.8km at the Tom Dumoulin BikePark in Sittard (that’s the Netherlands) that will create some time gaps. There’s only so much time you can gain in under 4km but the course is super technical, almost resembling a cyclocross circuit, and has a short stretch of cobbles for good measure.

The 2019 European Championships were supposed to be somewhere else but it got taken off them and given last minute to Alkmaar back in April. I decided there and then that I was going to pay it a visit and here I am! As usual, I took a camera and here’s some photos.

This Saturday sees the women’s peloton visit London for the Prudential Ride London Classique. Unlike the men who get to leave London and visit some of the Surrey Hills, the women are confined to Green Park and St James’s Park. The backdrop will be good, a finish line on the Mall and several passes of Buckingham Palace – the Queen can look out of one...
