Here’s something from Tony Flynn passed on from John Jones.
Quite a morning for me, we camped in Pangbourne Lane just a few yards from the start but somehow I managed a late start.
Then I punctured with about 10 miles to go and borrowed a bike from a rider who had packed.
Initially it caused quite a stir, I did shout out my number but one of the timekeepers had noticed my bike number and sent someone running down the Lane after me in order to check my number.
I did a 4:26 which was a PB but about 3 weeks’ later I went through the 100 mile checkpoint in the National Championship 12 hour in 4:18.”
Check out the feeding arrangements, Malt bread and honey sandwich anyone?!…..
