Darren Franks c’est fini


In a time of 53 hours and 43 minutes, our first tracked rider has crossed the line. Darren said of his ride:

“The course is beautiful but I hugely underestimated it. 48 hours is do-able but I need to lose those silly mistakes.

“I caught up with Rory McCarron in Villaines-la-Juhel and we absolutely destroyed the final 120km. Full gas the whole way – proper flow state. One of the most enjoyable rides I’ve ever done.”

Congratulations Darren. Enjoy a well-deserved bier!
