Tour of Southland II

Never let it be said that the stage through Western Southland is an easy one. Sure the terrain is not demanding, and the distance is only 88km but what about the weather? These riders had to cope with hail, snow and very slick roads today as they travelled from Invercargill to Tuatapere. Just before they hit Otautau, we had a burst of hailstones cover the streets then quickly melt away.

Followed by a small group.

Then the snow started falling again.

By the time these riders came into town, the snow was more like a blur.
