Got some time to kill? Here's some pics

So I went to the start of the GP Impanis - Van Petegen (read the preview here). I went together with my family (including a two year old that had to be entertained), so I didn't get to take as much pictures as I wanted to.

We'll start of with a happy Gorilla, because he actually won the race.

Want more? You know what to do...

Greipel, aka the Gorilla rode a nice bike, it looked like this:

Notice the cool Gorilla design.

There were some lovely Scott-bikes too (I like Scott)

And these guys rode them

Only four Orica-Greenedge riders would ride this race, and only three of them showed up at the podium.

I also wanted to photograph Thomas Voeckler, I'm expecting a good race from him in Valkenburg. Voeckler didn't seem very interested at the podium, plus I was a bit too far away to take decent pictures.

I was hoping I'd be able to take better pictures at the start of the race, but Voeckler was nowhere to be seen. After the gunshot (which was a whistle actually), all riders set off and then... one guy came out of nowhere, a hundred meters behind the others: Titi!

Voila.
