MUMBAI, India (VN) – Racing in India is quite unlike anything the top pros have ever seen before.
The sport is in its infancy in India, but nearly everyone sees the unlimited potential of the sport in India’s rapidly-growing economy and its budding middle class. Officials hope to expand the series to three days of racing in 2012 to eventually create India’s first stage race over the next few years.
Two races this weekend broke new ground as Indian cycling saw its first rolling road closure as part of Friday’s first-ever international road stage and a troupe of pros got a taste of “real” India after riding across the open highways of Maharasthra in a symbolic training ride Saturday in what’s cycling’s final frontier.
Here are some photographs from Sunday’s Tour de Mumbai, when Robbie Hunter (RadioShack) out-kicked Elia Viviani (Liquigas-Cannondale) to the win.
