Flat tyre for Luke at UCI World Champs

Luke rode a perfect race, sticking with the lead group of 5 for the entire race. By the end of lap three, there were just four seconds separating the top five who had pulled away from the rest of the field. He was sitting with the 3rd place rider during the second half of the final lap but punctured. He slipped back and crossed the finish line in 5th position. This is still considered a podium finish.

Luke is currently racing in the U/18 category making him one of the youngest riders in the Junior men age group.
