    The sign on Chester Road states the road will be closed from 11.30 to 12.30 on Monday September 4th to allow the elite bike riders to race out of the city. As they come up the hill from the Price’s Lane roundabout, there could be multiple crashes and bent wheels as they negotiate the multitude of pot holes and the uneven road surface provided by poorly filled holes. Maybe cones will indicate places where there are holes and uneven surfaces, making that part of the race more of a slalom stage!

    If they put a cone for every pothole they would have to close the road.

    They won’t be racing out of the city. The start is more of a ceremonial start, the start proper won’t be until after a few miles. They will gently roll out of town so hopefully should be easier to spot and avoid any potholes.

    It’s a good job it’s on the 4th September, after the 17th,they would probably be cycling over the 20mph speed limit !

    This may well be the last road Cycle Race to be held in Wales with the intro of the 20 mph – professional cyclist are not geared up to go so slow.

    If the tour have any sense, they should ask Doug Brooker to start the stage off.
