As you say, the first two are very standard as it was my first time in Llandegla and I hadn't had time to find view the circuit. By the time I reached the two points I had already passed the better positions and in a 10 mile course I wasn't back tracking.
The CC one I'm very please with as all my pictures are a one shot capture, non of this "machine gunning" then selecting the best, neither are they run through editing software. It came out of the camera that way.
Secondly I like it becasue of the subject, Jose Maria Cristobal is a fantastic junior rider who has a great future in cycling if he wants it. He not only has speed, he's unstoppable in both CC and MTB, I didn't follow the juniors too much on the road, but he also has incredible grace which makes the picture more exiting for me.
Lastly I took the shot at 14mm and could feel the air rushing past my face as he came by, and didn't/couldn't flinch.
I have got better track pictures but couldn't put my hands on them lastnight.
Here's something that's a bit better from the track, still not the best though.

Have you ever tried to get a good vantage point at a TDF Prologue?
You need to get yourself friends in high places and the correct back stage passes.
What I do know is that alot of my work is KwikSave photography...
Thanks for the comments.
I see we have another anonymous tagger who hasn't the cojones to speak publicly.
