Brit Daniel McLay finished second behind World Champion Jasper Stuyven at the junior Paris-Roubaix today in France.
There was some confusion over the podium positions, with McLay convinced he was third when he crossed the line. Official results later confirmed his second place.
"I am pleased to be third," McLay told Cycling Weekly, "but gutted at the same time."
McLay led Belgium's Stuyven and two others into the Roubaix velodrome. Their group formed after the eighth cobble sector of 16 in the 122.4-kilometre race.
Britain's Matthew Bailey and Sam Harrison came home in sixth and seventh respectively, giving Britain three riders in the top ten. Harrison won an award for 'best rider on the cobbles'.
