When will this rain stop? It’s another awfully wet day in Somerset! – Pouring down..
Managed to get the press bus en-route today, stopped about 6km into the ride in a lovely little village/town, where I got a pic of the main group riding through the village and added some colour with the flowers..
I grabbed a few frames from the start as they came through and was eagle eyed for the Sigma boys..clicked a few more when I saw Minty (Tom Murray) who, as soon as he realised it was me, decided to pull a lovely face – thanks Minty!
After about an hour we drove to the mid point on the KOM – it was horrendous! The rain (i kid you not) was blowing horizontal onto my gear *of which some of it is starting to play up) so I was sat on the roadside for about 30 mins waiting for the first group – then the next and so on…it was about 3/4 mile steep climb in wet weather to the press bus, but thankfully one of the team cars recognised me and stopped and gave me a lift to the top – leaving all the other press guys to walk back – ha! Hard luck!
