British Masters Track 10km, Horspath Track, Oxford 23rd Jun 13
Chris Flint and Peter Hannell appeared at the very windy National Veterans Track 10km in Oxford where both improved on recent races even though Chris did not match his excellent 20km in April. As usual Chris closed the gap which opened over the first mile although, like Battersea, Peter was able to find other racers just ahead and managed to use them to maintain sufficient pace to hold off Chris. This event saw several absent due to difficulties with the on-line entry system but some of the excellent current age group leaders were out including Chrisís M65 group while the M70s were sparse. The wind reduced times by perhaps a minute so Flintís numerical result concealed a good effort for the Bronze medal. The retirement of former member Ed Shillabeer, who appeared capable of easily beating Hannell, left Peter with the M70 Gold.
