Tour of Britain snapped in Budleigh Salterton















The Tour of Britain cycle race mentioned in my recent post at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2010/09/budleigh-on-tour-of-britain.html finishes today with its eighth stage in London.















But it was Stage Four from Minehead to Teignmouth on Tuesday 14 September that was the high point of the race for spectators in Budleigh Salterton.




















The ride across the South West peninsula, described as "aggressive", ended in a stage win for 22-year-old Dutchman Wout Poels. “It was a really hard race, with the three climbs and directly from the start it was hard, but it was a nice day,” he said.

Conditions weren't brilliant for photography in the autumn drizzle but I managed to get these shots of the race as it passed along Knowle Road.
