Race Day Transport

Please note that it is extremely difficult to get from the start to the finish in time to cover the finish of the elite races due to limited transport options and the crowds watching the event. It is therefore recommended that photographers covering the elite races should work either at the Start or the Finish and not attempt to do both.
