“This might be the oldest bike here today.”
Photographer’s notes: I should have taken the photo the other way and showed the parking lot filled w race cars and their rooftops adorned with the last two-wheel technology.
Oh well, live and learn.
There are hundreds of cyclists who bring their bikes to the event. Organisers had set up temporary stands to host the event spectators and you could see them fill, then empty as the race started.
And then, after the race, there is the parking lot filled with team cars, their rooftops filled with a larger capital costs than many spectres would earn in a year. Frightening stuff.
