Mark Lovatt grabs 3rd at Stan’s Road Race

Paramount CRT Stan’s Road Race
Location: Buildwas, near Telford, Shropshire
Event: 14 April 2012
Here's Mr Lovatt's version of events...
"Got up at 6.23am. Had two espressos. Muesil. Drove 50 miles to Telford in the sporting Panda. 83mpg!

"Four riders went up the road on the first lap. I eventually got away with two others and bridged the 90 second gap, only to wonder why I had bothered as they were hardly moving.
"With about ten miles to go we got caught by two others. One of which reminded me of myself twenty years ago. Strong, clueless and gobby.

"I ended up getting 3rd. Which was okay as my lights were going out after only having half a bottle, a gel and a cheap Turkish Delight in 70 miles. One day i will get the hang of this nutrition thing.
"My recovery involved chocolate cake and then wine whilst watching Amstel Gold on Eurosport."
