Uni tutor rides high in contest
A SWANSEA University tutor is riding high after his team secured second place in a prestigious cycling competition.
Gerard Oram of Ferryside, and his cycling partner Robert Saunders, came second in the corporate category of Le Duo Normand race, held in France.
Gerard's father was a leading track cyclist who was part of the British Olympic team in 1952, but Gerard only took up the sport after an injury meant he could no longer compete in athletics.
Gerard, who teaches War and Society modules as well as other classes for the Open University, said: "It's a such a big event.
''We were really pleased with the result."
