Probably on the "climb" at Quernmore. (Kwor-muh if you're wondering).

In reply to mike123: just home from watching the finish in blackpool, brilliant experience just a shame its all over so quick after standing in a howling wind and heavy rain for three hours ;-) well done to all the riders though in what was very trying conditions.

In reply to lfenbo: Was camped out by the finish line, the sprint was a complete blur as they were so fast, couldn't see who anyone was, my camera did a little better! http://www.flickr.com/photos/escher1/7979891578/

In reply to Escher: great pic, one i took was bit far out, i was just after where the vehicles turned off just before the finish line,so not very far from where you were.managed to get a decent one at the presentation though with the zoom full on ;-).

Was at the sprint in Caton, I left the house late so I didn't feel like struggling up to Quernmore in the shitting horrible weather.

Got home (and dry) in time to watch the finish on TV. Loving having it live.

In reply to Henry Iddon: We're you there last year? That really was grim, and we didn't even get to see a race!

In reply to Escher: The stage through Kendal was cancelled last year due to the wind.
