As the evening wore on the riders continued to climb past our position. It seems rather unfair to make the riders perform into the evening after a morning's hard racing. How do they arrange their meals?
I'm not particularly proud of these shots but have included them for interest.
A cool breeze was getting up in the last half hour which may have affected the rider's times.
The last few riders were hidden against the glare of the headlights from the following cars as I tried to find them in the viewfinder screen. Quite a number of my later images are simply not sharp enough to publish here once they are cropped.
