20th May 2012
Not quite the way to celebrate our 23rd Wedding Anniversary but we popped over to see Phil racing the Southern Region Championships on the hilly course over at Stockbridge. This race was over 90 miles and featured the top riders in the South, getting out of the car we were greeted with Philip in a breakaway of 3 riders! There was a rider up the road but they quickly caught him, importantly though the bunch were about 2 minutes behind. With 3 laps to go however they were caught and Phil had to dig deep to stay in, finishing 17th out of 80 odd riders was really impressive and the highlight so far of his season.
