Looking forward to the Road Race on Sunday but it looks like a very tough, hilly circuit in very heavy rain...

so tough that only 12 men finished
(anyone more than 10 minutes behind the leader at the end of a lap got pulled out of the race

Full action replays available here, for a while at least: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/commonw ... s/28230008

Someone had put a sign on Montrose Street...
"Col de Montrose Street - Pure Dead Steep". To have to ride up that a dozen times, at any speed, even without the rest of it...
