Christian wins in Germany

Another Manx cyclist has claimed victory on the international stage.

Mark Christian finished fifth on stage four of Junioren Rundfahrt stage race in Germany, but importantly the Manx Road Club rider did just enough to secure the overall win by one second from Danish rider Samual Ryvan.

Christian's Great Britain team mate and former race leader Luke Rowe finished third and GB won the team competition.

Meanwhile Jonny Bellis finished third in the young rider competition of the Saschen-Tour International in Germany following yesterday's 146km fifth and final stage.

He was 53rd as the main bunch came home just 15 seconds behind a pack of five riders led by Dutchman Karsten Kroon.

Bellis, who was using the event as final preparation for next month's Olympics, was three-and-a half minutes behind classification winner Sergej Fuchs of Germany.
