While I was stoked that Nicole Anderson got out and attacked in the road stages I see that the last stage was a real crash fest with Canterbury riders Aimee Burns and Julia Grant being carted off with broken collarbones. Hope everyone starting Vineyards tomorrow has a safe race.
I took a few photos while on holiday in Nelson, the photos are from Stage 1 only, the infamous Takaka Hill climb. There should be one photo of each rider. Free low resolution copies of the photos are at http://www.bodyandbike.co.nz/photos.html
