Libby Hill Turn

 

I filmed the Women’s Elite Race as they rounded a corner on the cobbles at Libby Hill. I noticed how the riders gravitated towards the same point at the end of the curve, though they found different routes to get there. The tendency is to attack the hill sharply, so that in this case (traveling up hill) they crossed from one side of the road to the other. There is also a drain pipe along the edge that allows for more stability than the cobbles, which may have been one reason for this trend.
