Catching Up With Up-And-Coming Dan Patten

We continue our round up of our 'men in the Flatlands' 2011 seasons with Englishman Dan Patten. Some good results have helped him move up from the well known but low budget Flanders team to Soenens-Construkt Glas, one of the best organised amateur teams in Belgium. We caught up with him at home in Essex, savouring his winter break.

An English Talent In Belgium: Dan Patten

Dan Patten was with Magnus Backstedt’s Magnus Maximus coffee team in 2009; grabbing a stage in a Swedish stage race and a top ten in the East Yorkshire Premier race in England – but the programme perhaps wasn’t as solid as Dan had expected and for 2010 he decided to take his chances in Belgium.
