Google Earth fly-over of the elite world road race championships course

Fly along the worlds road race course in Geelong, Australia, with a little help from Google Earth

Editor’s note: Many readers will need to download the free Google Earth browser plug-in to view this fly-over of the world champonships road race course (we think it’s worth it). Note that the fly-over does not include the opening 85km ‘dogleg’ portion of the course (see the map below the Google Earth player). While viewing, you can right click and use your mouse to change your point of view. Also be sure to check out the Robbie McEwen video tours of the course
