It has been a long day, I am hurting all over.  It has been a while since I lugged two cameras around with big lenses and flash units attached.  I have to say, though, I had a lot of fun.  I am quite surprised really.  I went there thinking that no one would remember me and it would be boring.  It was anything but.  It turned out to be so lovely to catch up with people.  It is late, or getting late, and I have quickly edited some images for you.

Taking the CornerHere are two of the Elite Women going around a bend.  The Geelong course is tricky and there are quite a few tight bends, actually all the bends are tight.  There were plenty of crashes on one corner.

The Other CornerThis was done at the other end.  The two women in front are part of the new Australian pro team, Green Edge.  It is nice to see them out racing.

Up the Back StraightThis is them coming out of the worst corner and heading up the Back Straight.  This group is the Elite Mens.

Front StraightYou can see the finish line there, though, this isn’t the finish.  I just wanted to be able to show you the crowds.  They weren’t huge, but for Australia, this is a good turnout.  It is always good to see lots come out to watch the racing.

Tomorrow we are off to Portarlington.  I don’t know what to expect from there.  I think I will get my post ready before I go, if you don’t mind. I will put up some photos from today, ones that need more editing.

Nice way to start the new year.  I am very behind with everything, so please forgive me if I haven’t replied to your comment/s yet, I will, but it may not happen until next week.
