Saturday was the finish of Stage 7 of the Lakes Oil Tour of Gippsland. We were able to get down to the village centre for the finish of the race.
We had good weather although it was quite breezy.
“….the scenery of the Latrobe/Gippsland regions is the equal of the Tour of France…..without the castles of course!”
I think that is stretching the imagination a bit. 🙂
The car on the right of the road, with hazard cones around it, was illegally parked. No one admitted to being the owner and so it remained there during the race.
The stage winner was interviewed by the crew from SBS for their television cycling program “Cycling Central”.
The overall leader was presented with his yellow jersey and we retired to the Metung Hotel to enjoy the view and have a cider.
I’m no expert at taking movies but this gives you some idea of the finish.
