"Last gasp" podium place in Austria

William shares podium with Kouros

Had to ‘sprint’ for the last 2 hours to get the third spot in the Austrian 24 hour Championships last weekend.  Only made it by 700m! Great reward to share the podium with surprise late entry Greece’s multiple world record holder Yiannis Kouros and the Ukraine’s Nikoly Solodovnikov.  My 216.44km/134.5 miles now tops the current GB rankings and is my best for 3½ years.
