Matt Franklin also of t1diabetes.info was away on his own at the front of the race with 14km to go then sadly got caught in the last 3km as his hard working break away was reeled in by the chasing pedalthon.
With the race now to be decided on a bunch sprint Dan Marshall made it look easy and got himself in the perfect position to win the sprint and take the victory!
In Dan’s victory speech he said he hoped it would raise awareness of diabetes and inspire people to take up sport whether they are diabetic or not!
Dan then went onto to thank SEAT Cars UK, Lapierre Cycles, Orbana Energy Drinks, Bounce Energy Balls, Dymag Performance Wheels, Clarke Willmott Solicitor’s and Ocean Estate Agents for all their sponsorship and support of the t1diabetes.info Race Team.
D.S. Ian Rees said it was no less than he expected of Dan who has been on the edge of great things this season and hoped that Dan would repeat his wining performance at his next race being the Mike Rutty Road Race, where t1Diabetes.info are fielding a strong team.
