Another day another Road race and medal hope for Team GB after the disappointment of yesterday. Yes I was at the Mall again to capture the start & finish of the Womens road race through London & Surrey. This being shorter than mens with just 2 laps of Box Hill instead of 9.
Lizzie Armitstead was in a pack of 3 riders leading into the sprint down the Mall in driving rain, where she finished a very respectable 2nd to get a silver medal. The significance being it is Team GB’s first medal of their home games. Rebecca Adlington added to the medals with a great bronze medal in the aquatics centre later on in the day.
I found it really hard to pick one image from today, as I could have used lots, so here is one of the riders as they set off.
