Pick your favourite image from the Tour of Britain

you don't get to vote in the compo... but you do here!

by Dave Atkinson   October 7, 2009  

You may remember – or even have entered – the Canon photo competition that ran during the Tour of Britain. Everyone was free to go and snap the race and send in their submissions, and thousands of you did. Well now the race is over the judges have been poring over the entries and have announced the shortlist of ten pics.

Each of the finalists will receive a Canon goody bag and the images will be on display on the Tour of Britain stand (C14a) at the Cycle Show this weekend. The crack panel of judges will pick a winner at the show, and they'll receive the big prize.

That's all well and good, but which would you pick if it was up to you? have a look at the image gallery and pick your favourite, just comment below to let us know which one you think is the best. No prize, it's just for fun. Who knows, we may even knock up a road.cc reader's award certificate or something. Or just stick one of our stickers on the winner at the show. And a Gold Star.

I like image 2, the weather doesn't look quite so bad in this photo.

Image 2 of the Columbia train. Just worried that the red heels are Tony and Dave above the hoardings;-)

The red heels for me, too.

I took a load of test shots of the podium girls in London ahead of the stage/race winners arriving, guess I forgot there was a better photo to be had looking down at their... feet.

Great shot and well observed.
