After an eventful weekend of racing that included two hard-fought finishes in Cat 3, Atomic Director Graham Lade secured the winners medallion. When pushed on his contribution during the race, would not be drawn on the effort, other than to say to offer that it was a terrific race and to congratulate fellow team member Peter von Hahn. With difficult conditions hampering the start of the season, the Escape Velocity Series has finally hit its stride in time for the start of the actual spring.
Whilst it is clear that Graham was able to secure the medallion on Saturday, rumors persist that he was in fact not at the race at all and was just in it for the bottle-opener. When pushed on this, Graham offered “no-comment”.
