May 16, 2010; Brecon (Wales), by Larry Hickmott | Full Report |

In a belter of a downhill sprint, Dan McLay triumphed easily to win the kick for the line ahead of teammate Owain Doull and Chris Nicholson.

The 2010 British Junior Road Race Champion is Dan McLay of the Hargroves Cycles team who won an exciting race on a sporting course based around the town of Brecon in Wales. After 74 hilly miles in the Brecon's, the title was decided in a bunch kick between 20 or so riders with Owain Doull (Hargroves Cycles) second and Chris Nicholson (Isle of Man) third.

A crash in the first few miles ruined the race for a few riders.

Despite having been ill before the race, Adam Yates was the rider of the event, away for most of the distance.

Adam Yates was joined by two more riders including Jordan Hargreaves.

They built up a good lead on the bunch prior to the second circuit.

On the long climb on the second circuit, the favourites burst into action but still they couldn't get away.

The leaders meanwhile were only four strong after the second big circuit.

Perry Bowater drives the peloton along forcing a split and the creation of a chase group.

Chris Nicholson, who finished third, saw the danger and crossed to the chase group on his own.

The leaders with 10 miles to go were still a minute or so clear.

The peloton splits on the climb as they chase the break drive along by Alistair Slater.

The riders from Hargroves Cycles help a small chase group get across to the leaders, doubling the size of the lead group.

A few miles out at the bottom of the final climb and Owain Doull goes on the attack.

Oliver Rossi leads Perry Bowater as they try to get away on the final climb a few miles from home.

Conor Dunne and Chris Nicholson try their luck on that last climb but to no avail.

New champion for 2010, Dan McLay.
