GREENWICH, Conn. Daniel Fox of Wilton won the Volvo of Stamford Tour de Greenwich XXVII, a 20-mile bicycle race, Sunday morning at Greenwich High School.
Fox, 45, got his front tire to the line first to win a tight finish among the top three racers. Fox had a time of 48:49.15, runner-up Matt Armstrong of Cos Cob had 48:49.40 and Wilton's Carlos Restrepo placed third with a 48:49.84. Fox won with an average speed of 24.58 miles per hour.
"This is great," Fox said. "In my former life I was a professional bike racer but then reality caught up with me. I got married and went to law school. In the last couple years I started to get in shape. I didn't think I'd win a race for a long time, so this is a very nice surprise."

Ian Farrar was the top finisher from Greenwich, placing seventh with a 49:46. Esteban Sequera of Milford and Guy Poirier of Wilton were also clocked in 49:46.
