Behind the scenes at Box Hill: Getting ready for the ladies race

The regional comms team had a much more restful night in our tents last night, and even managed to get a lift up the hill with a bunch of friendly rangers.

Our camera crew have been following some of the fans to get a different perspective on the action. Watch this space for our video!

We've had really mixed weather today - some sun,  some showers, but we've managed to shelter in our office. Which we learnt today, used to be housing for people who looked after the gunpowder for the fort here at Box Hill.

Along with being a top spot for cycling, Box Hill is also great for walkers. Here's to hoping the fans climbing up the hill today enjoyed their surroundings and come back for a walk.
