Scuttled by a scooter; end of the road for Steve Abraham’s year record attempt

Very sad to hear that Steve Abraham’s valiant attempts to break Tommy Godwin’s long-standing year record have ended in disaster.

Despite racking up a mind-boggling 16,888 miles for the year to date (2,500+ miles further ahead of Tommy at the same stage!), Steve was involved in a collision with a moped on the A38 in Somerset.

Steve requires surgery on a broken ankle; we wish him a very speedy recovery.

Hope to hear of news from Steve to re-attempt the challenge at some point in the future.
