Andy Nicoll's puncture-spoiled race

Bingley's Andy Nicoll had plans for a sub 4hr ride this year, and looked good fot it... until punctures had their way...
This really threw me as I knew I only had hand pump pressure in my back tyre which means that the road section would be slightly slower and I had to tackle Pen-y-Ghent lane on a less then perfect set up.
Sounds like one of those classic tales of heartbreak this race brings on every year... we've all had 'em - poor Andy - next year, eh?
