Racing in the Palmer Park Velo event at RAF Abingdon, Will Smith and Jamie Maxen dominated the strong field in the last circuit race of the year to finish first and second.

The flat and open course featured a long straight with a howling headwind and the pair used the numbers game in the 45-minute race to break clear.

Smith said: “I attacked with 20 minutes to go and Jamie and one more followed.

“After another lap it was only Jamie and I and we worked until late on when I got clear.”

The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
