Phil, Martin and Bunny travelled to Flintham Notts for this annual road race event. Held over a fairly flat course with just the hill at the end of each lap to test weary legs. Phil and Martin’s Race was run over 45 miles at an average speed of 25mph. At times the field was in a long line as Martin showed his form only for Phil to burst through to pile on the agony, unfortunately a break managed to escape up the road leaving Phil and Martin to contest the uphill sprint for 5th place, both finished in the front of the bunch with Martin ( the elder) gaining 3rd in his age category and Phil no doubt wishing his own birthday would come so he could have taken the age prize, but as he said “I got my win last weekend”.
