Velo-One riders Adam Ellis and Joshua Wallis travelled to Darley Moor Motorsport Circuit in Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

The British Cycling Men’s Category 3 and 4 road race started fast with a select group of riders making an early breakaway from the peloton including V1 riders Ellis and Wallis.

Into the last half of the race, Wallis dropped out of the breakaway, re-grouping with the chasing peloton.

The peloton attempted over the course of the 30-mile race to catch the breakaway group but good group riding prevented the catch.

On the final lap, the breakaway group sprinted to the line with Ellis finishing fourth.

Wallis finished the race 18th, a great effort considering this was his first road race. Gaining experience in his first season will make him one to watch for the future.
