Neil Martin, 1984 Olympian, former road race champion, ex-pro and father of Daniel Martin has been winning prizes in his adopted town of Girona in Catalunya, Spain. Martin took part in various events during the town’s inaugural Bike Festival last week and proved that there was plenty of life in the (not that) old dog yet.

The Festival, which comprised a series of rides and races based in the popular cycling haunt of Girona, saw hundreds of riders from 14 countries take part and organiser Dave Welch, is already planning next year.
