Rotherham’s Dean Downing improved on his 2013 result of third by finishing first in the Yorkshire Regional Road Race Championships.
It is the first time the 39-year-old NFT man has won the competition since back-to-back victories in 2007 and 2008.
Set around the historic battlefield of Towton where Yorkshire defeated Lancashire in the War of the Roses, both the Masters and Elite races delivered aggressive racing from the gun.
The elite race saw two select groups forming during the early stages. As the race wore on and the strong winds began to build, the two groups became one and a flurry of attacking began.
At the bell, it was Alastair Kay who led by 10 seconds, followed by a group of six containing pre-race favourites Dean Downing and Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis).
As the race entered the finishing straight, the break was back together and it was Dean Downing who pipped Adam Duggleby (Wheelbase Altura) to take the win in a fiercely contested sprint. Tom Stewart led in the remnants of the break to claim bronze.
The Masters followed in a similar vein with a break of eight establishing a one-minute lead within the first two laps.
This set the pattern for the rest of the race as the breakaway worked smoothly and the bunch failed to establish an effective chase.
The winner would come from the break, and it was Rob Watkinson who took gold in a fine solo effort that gained 10 seconds by the finishing line.
Richard Moore took Silver in a hard fought sprint with Glen Turnball who claimed bronze.
