Mark Cavendish, Tom Stewart, Dan McLay and Scott Davies all won races this weekend, with victories in California, Wales and France
From the USA to Europe, British riders made their mark on a variety of races over the past three days.
In Wales, Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis) took his form from last weekend’s Lincoln GP to win the Velothon Wales race ahead of Dane Rasmus Guldhammer, who finished fourth overall in the 2015 Tour of Britain.
Stewart, who took a dramatic win in Lincoln to deny Russ Downing a fifth win there, crossed the line first from a ten-man group at the head of the race, with NFTO’s Ian Bibby continuing his strong season with third place on the day.

Over the channel in France, Dan McLay (Fortuneo Vital Concept), continued to impress the locals with the win in GP de la Somme, where he beat five-time Grand Tour stage winner Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis), boosting his chances of winning a ride at the Tour de France.
Then there was Team Wiggins‘s 20-year-old Scott Davies, who took the final stage of the Ronde de l’Isard with a solo breakaway – finishing over 90 seconds ahead of Aldemar Reyes in second.
The win moved Davies up from 27th in the overall standings to ninth – the same place he finished in his impressive series of ride at the Tour of Croatia last month.
