Very very close. Tim led the whole race, but PJ made a late surge. He “out- Timmed” Tim.
I’ll post a gif of the finish shortly.
I thought the race would be like this. TM & PJ have very similar assets, both have incredible speed.

Here’s the start. I have labelled TM & PJ.
And for those with a particular interest in their start, here it is in SloMo.
Dcw excellent work on the clips.just one note on TM technique-when up and running he seems to stick his head out alot,charlie did you pay any attendion to this while you had him or would you just let it be?
Awesome stuff dcw thanks.
Tim looks good. He held on showing that he has that champion attitude. Is that something that we are born with or do we learn it?
This is what I thought of the race.
Tim was in front from start, Patrick made a surge from about 20 and looked to have Tim at 80.
To me they then both appeared to try too hard. Over striding and rotating from the hips too much.
Good race though and Tim can/should only get better. I hope Patrick can, I will wait and see though.
Am I just stupid, over critical or actually have some idea. I guessing the second.
DMA i have to agree with you, first time watching that race, at the end they were both matching each other’s steps, and lost form. in the end, overstriding and just struggling for the line.
Tim just fell over it first hehe
