Philip raced today with 4 of his new CSE team mates today including the pro cyclist Tony Gibb at the outdoor velodrome in Preston Park, Brighton. Unfortunately their new kit hadn’t arrived and they each raced in different kit.
Phil pinged off early in a break and stayed away for quite a few laps before being reeled in, Tony counter attacked and was joined by two others and they gained a lap.
In the style of Jens Voigt, Phil with 5 laps to go pretty much kept the bunch in check single handedly, but a London Dynamo rider made a charge for the line with over a lap to go and Tony had to respond and slowly started to reel him in, this ended in a dead-heat both sharing 1st place!
Very entertaining race and a great result for the team. More pics here..
