Flint veteran bike rider Alan Forrester finally achieved his main target since he took up cycling following a switch from running, gaining the British Road Race Championship (65-69 age category) on Sunday in Buckinghamshire. The Rhyl Cycling Club/Rhyl Bike Hub man hit the finish line first after a gruelling 62 mile race in sweltering heat, and had to ride conservatively due to a mechanical problem. The RNLI lifeboat manager had only two heavy gears to select of his normal 20 from the early stages.
