I DIDN'T intend to sit through the cycling road race which was one of the first events at the London Olympics. When I turned on the TV, the race had started but following the 250km would just take too long. Maybe, I will watch “for a while” and come back later to see the finish.
I saw the big pack in motion interspersed with close-up shots of the cyclists. Then the motorbikes whizzed by with cameramen riding pillion to capture the best angles.
