The eagerly anticipated Road Course races began today, with the Women’s Junior group starting off, followed by the Men’s Under 23. The racers did not disappoint, crushing the cobbles and flying down the streets of Richmond at speeds of up to 50 mph. To see a peloton of cyclists traveling at high speed, inches from each other and inches from the spectators is a breathtaking sight to behold.

Weather is gonna get wet tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see the impact of that!
