The final big road race before the British Road Race Championships was won dominated by UK Youth fresh from their win in the Tour Series. Marcin Bialoblocki countered an attack by a teammate Yanto Barker to go clear in the final kilometres and won seconds ahead of Niklas Gustavsson and Joshua Hunt.

The Photo Album!

The team went into the race with a plan and they stuck to it even when a break of 15 riders went clear and had a lead of four minutes. Team UK Youth came to the front after an hour or so and started to smash it team time trial style, leaving riders spread all over Cambridgeshire was how it came over race radio. They explained later, it was full gas because the break wasn’t hanging around and they really had to go some to pull it back.

It took a long time to bring the break back and then once they had, there were a lot of tired legs in there but UK Youth still had plenty in the tank and dominated a small group along with Node 4 Giordana. IG Sigma Sport also had a rider in it with young Ryan Mullen. So that was four UK Youth, three Node 4 and Ryan from IG Sigma Sport!

Bell lap though and who was it attacking through the finish splitting the group – yes, Ryan Mullen! But after his attack failed, UK Youth went on the offensive with Yanto Barker and then Marcin going clear on the final four kilometre finishing circuit.

The speed of the race was astonishing and the fitness of UK Youth and Node 4 after five weeks on the road showed as they dominated the race… Interviews to follow!
