William Tidball will head into Day Two of the Isle of Man Junior Tour in the yellow jersey after taking victory in the opening prologue in Douglas.

The PH-MAS/Paul Milnes Cycles rider finished the course on Douglas Promenade in a time of 1min 40sec, edging out Lewis Askey of Team Backstedt/Hotchillee and Matthew Shaw of Wheelbase Cabtech Junior RT who both finished on the same time.

As a result Tidball leads the British Cycling | Junior Men's Road Series event after stage one.

On such a short course, the times were very close, with a further five riders finishing a second behind the three leaders.

With this victory, Tidball takes the overall lead heading into Saturday’s second stage which is 106km long and begins in Jurby.

PH-MAS/Paul Milnes Cycles also lead the Team Classification by two seconds from Equiom IOM Junior Cycling Team A, with Wheelbase Cabtech Junior RT third, a second further back.
