Last year I thought it would be cool to get some photos of the riders stamping on their pedals as they climbed the hill up past the old tip to La Pedrera. I positioned myself on a bend where I could see a fair stretch of the hill with trees as a backdrop. Then it started to rain.
I stood in the rain for almost an hour waiting and waiting and then gave up. When I came back down the hill, the marshals had gone and cleared away the barrier.
Hopefully this year we will be blessed with better weather so that I can get some action shots of riders on their bikes.
