nervous, on a rainy sunday afternoon, a nation holds its breath and waits - surrey

It's hard to remember clearly now, but, as Lizzie Armitstead hurtled back to London with Vos and Zabelinskaya, Britain had no medals yet and wouldn't have a gold for another couple of days...

 

This was my favourite bit of my day out at the road race - just a few people who didn't want to be crammed onto the trains back to London and who stood, sheltering from the rain under the trees listening to the race commentary coming through the speakers on poles that lined the road up Box Hill.
