Top 20 spot for cy­clist

Loughborough Echo - - SPORT -

EN­DURANCE cy­clist Tom Hodgkin­son fin­ished 20th in the Elite cat­e­gory of the WEMBO World Solo 24 Hour Mountain Bike cham­pi­onships at Fort Wil­liam in Scot­land.

Rid­ing for Team JMC, the Sileby man was hop­ing for a top 10 fin­ish but had to pull out of the race af­ter 18 hours as he passed out and had early signs of hy­pother­mia.

He plans to re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion in the new year and is look­ing at an­other tilt at the world cham­pi­onships in 2020 when it takes place in Aus­tralia.
