Starting in group six (scratch), he rode strongly from the start – breaking away early and putting a two-minute gap before taking the group win.

Roland Kiraly and Matt Elworthy travelled to Darley Moor Circuit, Derbyshire, to compete in round three of the March Madness Road Series.

In the British Cycling Category 3 and 4 race, Kiraly took a second-place finish.
