These 3 shots are from the start of the road race..and although they show cyclists riding toward the camera, for the race we cycle "into" the photos
about 1km from the start and about to turn left
this is the left turn and the start of the climb sweeping around to the right..change down to small chain ring time for the old ladies is at the right hand bend
those houses you can see are where the road is on the lower slopes of the climb.
The photo is taken from the road we return on.....
Kirchdorf, a village we ride through about 4km from the finish
seen out on my ride..I'm not sure what to think of this matching pair in their pseudo lederhosen/Tirolean lycra get up..they're either a bit weird or very brave.
So you can get a better idea, here's one of the ad pix from the club web site
What got to me more than anything else is that they are from a MTB club!!! in my wildest dreams I can't see any of the MTB'ers I know going for this garb as a regular club jersey and nix.
