Great Britain’s Paul Oldham finished 28th in the elite men’s race at the UEC MTB European Cross-country Championships in St. Wendel in Germany.
The 36-year-old was Britain’s sole representative in the event and crossed the line six minutes and 42 seconds behind French winner Julien Absalon.
Oldham, who won at the second round of the British Cycling MTB Cross-country Series, took 1:50:46 to complete the six laps of the 7.3-kilometre course as sixty riders from a field of 71 finished the race.
The race was the final event in this year's championships.
On Saturday, Isla Short had produced a superb ride for sixth in the junior women's race while Dylan Kerfoot-Robson also delivered a top-ten finish, coming home 10th in the junior men's race.
