2011 National Youth Circuit Race Championships

Photos and results from the 2011 National Youth Circuit Race Championships which were held for the first time in Lister Park, Bradford, which has previously hosted the finish of a Tour of Britain stage.

The young champions of Britain made the British Youth Championships an extra special day with joy and tears as future stars realised their dreams of becoming champions. The day saw Lister Park blessed with bright sunshine burning bright on what has to be one of the hardest courses ever used but in the most picturesque of venues. Our thanks to  John Purdy for the results and to Carl Lawrenson for the plugs to the watching spectators.

Youth A Boys
Chris Lawless won this in a two up sprint against Tao Geoghegan-Hart. Five riders escaped around halfway after an attacking but stop start first half of the race. The five remained together depite a few digs by Lawless until five from the end when Lawless really gave it full gas and rode clear while the other four looked at each other.

Tao Geoghegan-Hart though managed to escape the chasers and joined Lawless and the two came pass the finish line with a lap together  tightening their shoe straps in preparation for a sprint. Lawless knew he had been getting round the tight bend before the finish better than his rival and so he really went for it, coming round the corner clear and staying clear all the way to the finish where he admitted afterwards, this was a race he had been targetting all year. Defending champion Germaine Burton crashed on the final lap when in the group chasing third place.
