Antelope "Two Up 10"

Glenn Longland & John Woodburn

“We didn’t get where we are by not racing in the rain” said Glen Longland at the prize presentation. It was a gentle dig at the few non-starters for the deluged Antelope RT 10. To be fair to those that did not trouble the timekeeper it was an awful morning, one perhaps better spent on the turbo trainer. Longland was celebrating 40 years of racing with a double promotion on the P140, Romsey- Brook course in Hampshire, scene of his first Open event back in 1971. Saturday’s solo “10” had enjoyed fine weather, with Harry Bulstrode (Contre la Montre) setting a new course record with 21.38. Sunday’s two-up 10 was a not so lucky; the forecast was for heavy rain and heavy rain it was. Bulstrode made it a weekend double, riding with teammate Andy Bryson; the pair was some 19 seconds slower than Bulstrode’s time of the previous day. "It was quite frightening, i couldn't see, i had this silly visor on and it got steamed up" commented Bulstrode. Reminiscing about the early years Longland said “I rode my first event on this course; it was the other way round though with a dead turn. We never had HQs it was just a lay-by, we just put a table up, some calor gas and made a cup of tea” There were more races back then, regular ones, you could do a time trial and a road race on the same weekend, it’s just about having a go, no one has a go at road racing any more. I rode my 24 inch front wheel yesterday just to celebrate! Longland has won the BBAR and more than a few National Titles as well as being a successful road racer, he rode the old Eastern Block Peace Race three times. What gives him the most satisfaction? “The12 hours, it was my favourite event, I enjoyed it, then it was the Peace Race” Glenn had ridden today’s event with another old champion John Woodburn (VC Meudon) recording 24.58, had he enjoyed it? “Yes, John apologised for not coming through, he said to me do you think you will still be racing at my age, 75, I said yes, if I am alive, John.”
