After finishing ninth in the MTB Cross Country race at the Commonwealth Games, Trawden’s Paul Oldham was a surprise entrant in the road race on Sunday.

Last Wednesday, Paul was ready to return to work at Hope Technology in Barnoldswick, but was asked by British Cycling’s Shane Sutton to join the England team for the road race on Sunday, and in high winds and torrential rain, he kept with the main group until the last few laps, when he was forced to stop by the officials, and technically finished 27th out of over 139 cyclists.
