Newlands Pass just after the first feed
You should still be able to smile on this one photographer will be near the top to take in the full vista of the climb
Marian covers the intermediate section after the first climb.
If you pull your foot out on the ramp, drop back to the bend, sort yourself out and take a flier past Steve for your photograph.
The best photos are of individual riders, you can easily be lost on the wrong side of a group and be missed by the camera. If a photo is important to you, create a little space around yourself and ride up the centre of the road. If you need to walk, keep to the right and allow free passage to the riders – we don’t photograph walkers.
Make a mental note of the time when you are on Hardknott – it will help with the search for your photos.
Uploading of event photographs to our site will commence midnight, Sunday and should be completed approximately 06:00 Monday.
Finding your photographs
Search for your photos using location and time
ALL FOLDERS ARE TIME TAGGED
Photos are grouped in location folders with a time.
For example Hardknott Pass 13.00 – 14.00
All riders we have photographed in that time period will be in the folder, (that could be as many as 3 cameras, so expect images to be spread over several pages as you make your way along the route).
The file names will represent the time you passed the camera – for example a file name may look like this: 141059
1400 hours, 10 minutes and 59 seconds.
Type in the search 1410 and all the files within that minute will display, do not add the seconds to the search.
This should tie in with personal GPS units and give a good indication of your photo’s location in the folder.
