Le Tour de Britain

Managed to see the last hour of the time trial through the streets of Birmingham today. Well, when I say "see", you don't get to see an awful lot during a time trail.
I found a nice place to watch, at the end of Broad St at the Paradise Circus junction. Having seen the route, I thought that it would be where the photogs would be, and low and behold a number of them were there. So jumped over the barrier, found a perch and pulled out my 1D2 and the 300f4.
You got a real sense of speed at this corner, and you could spot the riders who were just a little nervous of the tight corner. The best/fastest didn't touch their brakes, even though they did an average of about 48kph over the course.
Will put up some photos later
