Flippin' heck there is a new champion pancake tossing team in town.
Determined competitors from La Roche gym knocked three-time winners Sainsbury's off the top spot in the annual Shrove Tuesday race yesterday.
The fun but fiercely competitive Charity Pancake Race was held in King Street with frying pans being fired up from 1pm.
Battling it out were 13 teams from across Maidenhead including runners from Noodle Nation and Specsavers who took part for the first time.
Following a trio of semi-finals the teams were whittled down to the final three.
There was tension in the air as they sped away from the starting line and after the first leg it was neck and neck.
But ultimately it was Daniel Moore, 19, and Jamie Townsend, 20, from La Roche who proved they had the fastest flipping skills.
Personal trainer Daniel added: "It's nice to win so close to the David Lloyd gym and just proves which is the best gym in town."
Runners from The Community Safety Partnership came second with a Sainsbury's team taking third place.
Best dressed went to Promote PR who donned fake beards for the occasion.
The sixth annual Charity Pancake Race was organised by town centre manager Steph James.
Money raised will go to Sport Relief and the proposed Rotary Club of Maidenhead Bridge.
