Need for speed - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 24 September 2014 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

I am at the criterium - part of the three day National Capital Tour cycling event. Here you see one of the fast corners in the Women's 40 lap race.

The circuit was a loop between Parliament House and Old Parliament House - which you can see in the background.
