I have just watched history and one of the best Scratch races ever. Martyn Irvine of Ireland at the world track championships went off the front with 10 laps
to go and while the others looked at each other he held a 250 meter lead while knocking off the remaining laps.. an Austrian guy managed to ride up to his wheel with 2 to go but at the bell Mr Irvine dug even deeper and crossed the line first!
Now this is amazing as the last Irish medal was 116 years ago by Mr Harry Renoylds .
Previous to the scratch race Mr I had just raced two 4000 pursuit’s in which he bronzed in also.
Nice riding Sir !
