All the team here would like to congratulate Dan Whelan in becoming the National TLI Champion for 2009.
It’s a great achievement Dan, after racing hard for around 35 miles, an uphill finish allowed him to out sprint the others and take first place.
The race began with a roll out from headquarters with a rider immediately attacking once started. He got a fair gap and Dan realised this and time trialed his way up to him. (A good job he’s been TT’ing lately!) Once caught the two rode well but soon the bunch caught back up.
Although others tried the wind and sheer speed of the bunch meant any more attacks were for nothing.
The last mile of the race was uphill, with everyone finishing together it was a tough one, Dan got blocked in but found one of those spaces ‘which wasn’t there’ and nipped out, sprinting for the line and getting there first! Nice one!
A National Champion for PBK – doing the kit proud.
