With everyone being local, the route along Cotwall End Road cleared after the first wave of cyclists.
Then, an hour later we were all back for part two.
Again, my wife and I had our Welsh and English flags, cheering on Geraint Thomas and Dan Bigham respectively.
Although in reality, I was behind both really, as well as Northern Ireland and Scotland’s representatives.
I was more interested in the spectacle and what a great afternoon it’s been.
