A big entry from Andebu IL in Norway means we are well above the 800 mark now, so as promised here is a race photo. It shows the main start arena at West India Quay. The photo is tonemapped – we can’t promise the colours will be quite so vibrant on the day! You’ll recognise those cranes though. It was taken by Dave Pearce under a CC licence and the original can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/davebass5/6789259528.
