George Atkins won the junior road race in Abergvenny today, beating his breakaway companion and Olympic Development Program team mate Tim Kennaugh.

The pair came in to the finish together but had in fact ridden very different races. Kennaugh, younger brother of Peter Kennaugh, had boldly attacked alone from 12 miles out, while Atkins had only just arrived at the front of the race after biding his time in the safety of the peloton.
