Bronze for Kelly at British junior road race champs

Team Microgaming-Isle of Man rider Jake Kelly won the bronze medal in the British National Junior Road Race Championship on Sunday.

Kelly was third in the 125km race held on a testing course near the Brecon Beacons in South Wales, finishing in the same time as the silver medalist.

Team Microgaming riders Nick Corlett and Alex Haddock finished 48th and 60th respectively.

Kelly’s medal continues the success of Manx riders in the British National Junior Road Race Championship in recent years.

Chris Nicholson won bronze in 2010, Tim Kennaugh silver in 2009 and his brother Peter won silver in 2006 and gold in 2007.

The current World Road Race Champion Mark Cavendish was silver medallist in the 2003 British junior race.
