As usual in any sporting event where I am taking photos, I always like to take some portrait shots of the athletes participating in the event. With cycling it is even more interesting because during the race they all wear helmets and sunglasses. It is very hard if not impossible to say who is who. I had to look at the starting list to figure out who was who during the time trial race. So here are some portraits of these women athletes.
