He stayed on my tail for quite a while, although sometimes I lost him at pinch points where I'd take the lane - it seemed he wasn't happy with that. By the end I was going pretty hard, but he was in my draught.
Anyway, got to the point where there's a rise... not long, not steep, but a rise. When I looked, he was about 500m back
Then I stopped to buy some beer!
