And finally, the race:
R0 - Introducing the leaders at the start - there were a number of countries represented
R1 - The pace car (it's a ROOT beer bottle on the windshield...)
R2 - The pack at the starting line waiting for the national anthem
R3 - They're off and pedaling
R4 - The leaders going through the third curve on the second lap
R5 - On Ridge Road going into the fourth curve - probably the third or fourth lap
R6 - The chase official was working hard to keep up
R7 - The middle of the pack on Dixie Hwy., sixth or seventh lap (the longest straightaway)
R8 - Eight 90 degree turns on the course, generally spaced about this far apart
R9 - Does not take long to get left behind. This is about the 10th lap.; the skies were looking gloomier, and my camera batteries were dead.
The race was scheduled for 70-some laps, but I understand it was cut short by rain.
Hope you enjoyed these pix.
