With less than 24 hours to go to the two time trial races at the 2012 London Olympic Games, the area surrounding London's Hampton Court Palace is being prepared meticulously for the arrival of thousands of fans, the world's media and the best time trial riders in the world.
As the final checks were made, many of the riders tested the course ahead of tomorrow's push for gold. Men's favourite Bradley Wiggins got in some last minute prep alongside his Team GB colleagues Chris Froome, Lizzie Armitstead and Emma Pooley while representatives from other nationalities also got a last look at what lies in store tomorrow. There was also plenty of opportunities for opportunistic young autograph hunters to add to their collections.
