Last night at the European Master track championships Jayne Payne won a Silver medal in the Points race. Her great rival from the UK, Janet Birkmire won the gold.
What makes Jayne’s achievement all the more impressive is that they were running all the age groups in one race and she still finished second! Jayne said “It was a hard won race….The race stayed together, despite my attacks and those of the others. I was really pleased with my sprinting, which is famously weak”.
Jayne is now preparing for her 2km pursuit this coming Saturday. We all wish you luck Jayne.
EDIT: The BC report, with pics, is here.
