Phil Dixon

HAVING attacked on the first lap and stayed away for the duration of the race, Phil Dixon won the elite title in the National Cyclo-Cross championships at Southampton this afternoon.

The 26-year-old Trek-SiS rider crossed the line over a minute ahead of 2005 champion Nick Craig, with six-times Three Peaks winner Rob Jebb finishing third. Airing his new T-Mobile colours for the first time in competition, defending champion Roger Hammond could manage only fourth.
